A Wisconsin Travel Ambassador

Pewaukee Lake Water Ski Club 2019

Hey there! I’m Chelsey Knuth.

I am a Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based travel and lifestyle blogger, social media influencer, and digital content creator. My goal through The Wisconsinista is to help inspire your next Wisconsin adventure and to embrace local travel, wherever you are.

I grew up in the town of Mequon, just north of Milwaukee, but now reside in the city proper. Despite my urban roots, I consider myself a “country person.” Childhood trips to our family cabin in Jackson County and my grandparents’ cottage in Three Lakes helped define my appreciation of Wisconsin’s great outdoors from a young age.

These days, I am especially passionate about outdoor recreation. You can often find me water skiing on the Milwaukee River, snowmobiling “Up North,” or hiking at one of Wisconsin’s many parks. I hope you enjoy this blog and invite you to ask me any questions you might have as you plan your next Wisconsin adventure.
