Raised with an appreciation of family,friends,writing, music, and cheese, Caprise has embraced her Wisconsin upbringing-sadly enduring her lactose intolerance. Her love of writing however, has never been curbed. Starting in the second grade when she wrote a poem for her teacher’s new baby. 38 years later, Caprise is still at it. Following college, her professional career in Human Resources was switched to education after deciding she was over adults. With time spent on her observations on life and her free spirited daughter known as G, Caprise hosts a weekly radio show. Shoes, makeup, music, pastries, tattoos and a slight obsession with Henry Rollins have replaced the loss of cheese and ice cream in her life; all the while restrained with whip cream and a cherry on top of this thing she calls life.
