Chelsey on the Star Lake Nature Trail in Vilas County Wisconsin

A Wisconsin Travel Ambassador

Hi there! I’m Chelsey Knuth.

I am a Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based travel writer, 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 prefer to spend my free time in nature. 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.

I started this blog in June of 2018 and am so passionate about what I do. I’d love to chat with you about it – send me a message!
