Kristi moved to the Fox Valley from Springfield, Minnesota (the same town in “Little House on the Prairie”) when she was hired by Kimberly-Clark 20 years ago. Now a Brand Design and Packaging Director, she has worked with several well-known, globally-expanding brands. She also feels privileged to serve on the Trout Museum of Art Board of Directors. Her 12-year-old daughter, Addison, is her true pride and source of happiness. Kristi firmly believes that “your vibe attracts your tribe,” and she treasures her amazing “framily” (family and friends) and loves laughing out loud with them. Kristi felt called to participate in Shall We Dance by her belief that the road to awareness and help for the silenced sufferers of sexual assault and abuse is through speaking openly and honestly. Kristi is honored to be a part of this important event.
Zeke Cribbs, Boogie Ballroom
Zeke and his wife, Pamela, are the owners of Boogie Ballroom in Neenah. Zeke attended UW-Madison and it was there where he fell in love with dance. He was first exposed to dancing through various African dance styles, which somehow lead him down the road to ballroom dancing. It was his love of ballroom dancing that gave him the confidence to pursue his now “ever so lovely and wonderful” wife, Pamela. Together they competed professionally as members of the National Dance Council of America. Seeing firsthand the power that dancing has on a person’s life, Zeke and Pamela both feel very passionate about Shall We Dance! Freedom, self-confidence, new sense of self, a way to express what you feel…are just a few of the things that the dancers themselves will have the chance to experience. What better path to use to raise funds to equip the Sexual Assault Crisis Center to do the same for those in need in our own community! Zeke and Pamela feel so fortunate to play a part in such a wonderful cause!
