Serese is no stranger to the Midwest. She was born and raised in Kansas City and after years of moving from state to state - has called Nebraska home the last decade. Serese says it didn't take her long to fall in love with Cornhusker State. She literally fell in love and married a Nebraskan.
She and her husband Todd have been married for 11 years and have two young sons. When she's not at work, Serese loves spending time with her family, a good workout (when she can get it in) and every now and then - an adventurous trip to a place she's never been.
