#whyad2

i joined ad 2 milwaukee because i had an interest in growing my professional network and trying my hand at different skills i haven’t used in the workplace. since joining, i’ve made meaningful connections that i believe are the greatest benefit of all. i’ve learned so much from both our board and regular members, and consider many to be dear friends. it’s amazing to have a supportive group who knows exactly where i’m in life, both professionally and personally, and can offer great advice and help me grow in my career!
