This week on Homegrown Success, we introduce you to Edie Brengel Radtke.

She has been a local leader in Milwaukee's non-profit sector, chairing the board of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and PEARLS For Teen Girls.  She also co-founded the Wisconsin AIDS Fund and worked with various arts groups, including the Milwaukee Ballet and Wisconsin Forum.

But she didn't start her career as a volunteer.  After several years working as a commercial banker, she eventually transitioned into the non-profit world.  And she never looked back.

What does she say is special about Milwaukee?  What's her advice for young people growing up here?
