Born and raised in the Frozen Tundra (a.k.a. the Upper Peninsula of Michigan).  Tonya wandered around the Midwest for several years – Lower Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska – before landing here in Wisconsin (is it weird to take a job just so you can have unlimited access to cheese? #AskingForAFriend)
