Meet Our Team

This amazing team of leaders advises, governs, oversees policy and direction, and assists with the general promotion of the East Troy Family Community Resource Center so as to support the organization’s mission and needs.

Marolyn Komperud

Program Director

I have been the Program Director for our Family Resource Center since 2006 and hold a Bachelor of Social Work Degree with a focus on children and youth from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse.

Prior to working for the Family Resource Center, I was a Child Protective Services Investigator for the State of Wisconsin in Milwaukee for six years. I am a lifelong resident of East Troy and a graduate of East Troy High School.

I am married to my husband, Scott Komperud and we have two children, Kiley & Conner. I am a past recipient of the East Troy Community School District and East Troy Area Chamber of Commerce Volunteer of the Year Award. I was an active Girl Scout leader for thirteen years and I am an active member of the Kiwanis Club of Greater East Troy.

Stephanie Tuyls

Board President &
Chair of the Holiday Craft & Vendor Fair

I have been a part of the Family Community Resource Center since about 2010. When I joined, I was looking to meet new people and learn more about the small community I was a part of. I have since been able to be part of many amazing experiences in my time on the Board and hope to see many more continue. I enjoy the activities that people look forward to year after year, seeing smiles on the kid's faces and bringing joy to those who need it. I think this is why I have decided to be a part of it as long as I have, even when we tried living outside of East Troy. I firmly believe this tie is what brought us back here to look for our forever home, the small tie to this community. It was a small reminder of why I love this community and want to continue to be a part of it and watch it grow.

I am married to my best friend Dale, and we share 4 amazing kids together. We have a busy household filled with all sorts of kids’ activities, 3 dogs; Bella, Olivia, and Rocko, along with 2 cats; Peanut and Simba. I like to think we live for being busy and filled with a bit of chaos.

I work full-time in the medical field in medical education, so not necessarily shaping young minds, but young adult minds. I am the “mom boss” to Family Medicine Residents who are becoming the doctors of our future.

In my free time, you can find me supporting my kids in their extracurricular activities, bowling, enjoying our family pool when Wisconsin weather allows, on our patio, or just being with my friends and family.

Beth Keizer

Board Vice President

I am a long-time resident of East Troy. My family moved to Timber-lee Christian Center in 1979 when I was 9 years old. I grew up in the East Troy School District and am a Class of 1987 ETHS Grad. After high school, I married the love of my life, John. He was from Delavan, so I was away from East Troy for a while enjoying the farm life with him. After his death, I moved with my kids, Tyler (Class of 2011) and Dena (Class of 2012) back to East Troy.

I love East Troy and all that we have to offer. I love to see our quaint little town grow! There is so much hustle and bustle all year long. I am the Branch Manager of the East Brook Branch of Citizens Bank located in the East Brook Plaza at the east end of town.

Marolyn Komperud came in one day to ask me to consider joining the East Troy Family & Community Resouce Center Board. I read the materials she gave me and attended the next meeting to see and hear what they were all about. By the end of the meeting, I had made my decision to join. I have been a board member since 2018. I enjoy being with a group that loves to help the community. I enjoy planning and participating in our fundraising events. My favorite is our annual auction.

When I’m not working or volunteering for various events, I enjoy time with my family. My parents are snowbirds, so I try to get to Florida a couple times a year. I love to laugh my way through game nights and be swept away through movies. 

Trisha Ide, MS, HS-BCP

Board Secretary 

I graduated from East Troy High School in 2002 and have lived in the East Troy community most of my life. I have been married for over 12 years and have 4 children that range in age from 20 years old to 3 years old. My daughter graduated from East Troy High School in June of 2022, and my 11-year-old son attends East Troy Middle School.

I have built a career on the foundation of helping and supporting others. I currently work as a Human Services-Board Certified Practitioner within the community with members of the disability community and their families. I help families effectively navigate state services and provide a variety of services to improve their quality of life.

I have an Associate of Science Degree in Legal Support & Services, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Services and Youth/Family Services and Administration, and a Master of Science Degree in Human Services and Organizational and Social Services. I am also a Certified Mediator, Certified SAFE Home Study Practitioner/Supervisor, and a Behavioral Treatment Therapist. I partner with county agencies and state programs including IRIS, CLTS, DVR, and Medicaid. 

I was introduced to the East Troy Family & Community Resource Center a few years ago through a friend who was serving as the President of the board at the time. I had attended a few events and was invited to learn more about serving on the board. I left the meeting that night as a new board member. I believe in the mission and the values of the center and I also believe in the people that are in this community. In October 2021, I accepted the position of Secretary for the ETFCRC. I look forward to continuing to support the East Troy community as a board member of the East Troy Family and Community Resource Center.

Board Treasurer

Bio coming soon.

Jenni Lehman

Board Member

I have been a lifelong resident of the East Troy Community.  I have two grown children; Lindsey and Kyle. I am married to my husband Kelly. I graduated from ETHS and then attended UW-Whitewater, majoring in elementary education and minoring in coaching.

I have been a full-time educator since 1993. I am currently a full-time educator for the East Troy Community School District as a substitute teacher at the elementary level. I love working with children of all age levels and have done so in the past by helping out with K-8th Chess Club, 5th-9th grade Volleyball, K-8th Ski Club, K-8th Forensics, and First LEGO League Robotics - two-time world championship ranked teams. I am the 3rd Grade Prairie View LEGO club advisor and help with the Ski Club for the 5th grade at Prairie View Elementary.

This is my second year serving on the East Troy Family and Community Resource Center Board. I enjoy contributing energy as a board member for the community and resource center, by working hard and volunteering at our hosted events. Generally speaking, you won't see me "steering the ship", but quietly working hard behind the scenes full steam ahead with the crew.

Amber Guthman

Board Member

I moved to East Troy from Whitewater in 2019 with my boyfriend. Since then, our family has grown. We currently have a 2-year-old daughter and a 4-month-old son. My parents are from East Troy and moved to Whitewater when I was 3 years old. Since moving back, East Troy feels like home and where we were always meant to raise our family.

I am a real estate agent with CARE Real Estate. Before becoming a Realtor, I worked as a Veterinary Technician at the Wisconsin Veterinary Referral Center (WVRC) as an Internal Medicine and Emergency Technician. I graduated in 2015 with an Associate Degree in Veterinary Technology. I decided to make the career change after my daughter was born because I wanted more flexibility in my schedule to be there for all the important moments. I also waitress part-time at East Troy House.

I decided I wanted to start getting more involved with the community and do something family-focused, which led me to the East Troy Family & Community Resource Center. I am eager to connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for making a positive difference in the lives of families within the community. I hope to build enduring connections with fellow volunteers, staff members, and the families we aim to assist. Joining the board is an incredible opportunity to grow personally as I embark on this inspiring journey of service and compassion.

Casey Heimos

Board Member

I have lived in East Troy since 2005. I have 3 children, Sophia, Silas and George. Sophia and Silas both graduated from East Troy High School, and George is currently attending Prairie View Elementary.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics from the University of Florida. I had planned on going on to get my Master's in Speech Pathology, but life has a funny way of steering us in other directions. I met my husband Jody during a summer in college at a summer camp in Missouri, and almost 30 years later, we are still at camp.

I served as an elementary library aide at both Little Prairie Primary and Prairie View Elementary for several years, before stepping back last year and joining my husband full-time at Edwards YMCA Camp. I was an active Girl Scout Leader for 8 years and served as the Treasurer for the East Troy All Sports Booster Club for 6 years. I look forward to being a part of the East Troy Family Resource Center as I have seen for years the positive effects it has had on our community.
