    I started with Alliant Energy & IBEW Local 204 in 2010 on the Iowa Property at the age of 19. Originally being from Mosinee, WI my heart was still back in the badger state. After a year and a half in Iowa I transferred back to Wisconsin after accepting a job as a Service Worker in Mauston, WI and then became a member of IBEW Local 965. Getting an apprenticeship was my main goal out of High School so I stuck to that path and found my opportunity as a Large Gas Metering Specialist & Regulation Technician in 2013, and In September of 2015 I finished the apprenticeship to become a journeyman and took the position in Baraboo, WI where I live now. As of April 1st 2017 I started my new career as the Assistant Business Manager/Organizer for IBEW Local 965. I wouldn't be where I am today without the IBEW, and I'm proud to accept this position and help make this great union even stronger.

    I started with Alliant Energy/WP&L in 1993 at South Area. Went to Rock River in 1995 and stayed there until they closed the plant.  I bumped back to South Area and wored in the warehouse.  In 2017 I went to the transformer shop. 

    I have been involved in the union throughout my career. I have been a steward, Chief Steward, Unit 8 Chair, organizer and was appointed to the President's position in November 2018.

    Vice President

    Jill Levenhagen
    I was hired at Alliant Energy/WP&L in March 2013 as a North Area Operations Representative in Fond du Lac.  In the fall of 2015 I attended the IBEW 6th District Progress meeting. This wonderful opportunity allowed me to hear Dr. Fran Carter's story, a real live "Rose the Riveter" from the World War II era. I was also able to meet Cheri Stewart, "GranFran's" daughter and the only woman International Represetative for the 6th District. After becoming aware of their background, I decided to become more involved with the Local; started going to the monthly Unit meetings and attended a few Women's Conferences. I am the Chief Steward for North Area and look forward to serving as the Interim Vice President.

    I started as a line apprentice in April 1990 and am currently a Line Tech out of Southern Area. I was elected Treasurer of Local 965 in July 2001. I presently hold that position to date. I was the Unit Recorder for Unit 8, Jatc president,  and the chair of the Solidarity Committee.  I presently reside in Milton with my wife (Darcie) and two daughters (Brenna and Kylie).

    Recording Secretary

    Brittany Tuescher

    I started with Alliant Energy & Local IBEW 965 at the call center in Madison January of 2012.  In September of 2012 I took a position at our Janesville Dispatch office as a dispatcher.  I loved my job there but wanted to be in the field more and took an Engineering Tech apprenticeship position in February of 2014.  In March of 2017 I completed the apprenticeship and now am a journeyman Engineering Tech for Beloit.   As soon as I finished my apprenticeship I joined the RENEW committee and have been active in that since.  In September I became the Recording secretary and hold that position to date.  My newest involvement in the union is as chair of the newly formed Women's Committee with Holly Kaiser.  My personal goal is to get younger people and more women involved in the union.  We all are the future of our union.
