Meet the Team

Sarah Howard

Executive Director


Over the course of my 13+ year career, I’ve worked in marketing, community relations, fundraising, and development with various organizations – notably the NHL Chicago Blackhawks and a large trade union in Chicago. Growing up, I’ve had ties to Wisconsin and always envisioned permanently moving here and starting a family. Before Visit Pleasant Prairie celebrated its first year, I was hired as the Director of Marketing & Communications. In November of 2022, I was appointed as Executive Director after five months of serving as interim. I’m passionate about creating and promoting opportunities for people to come together and connect. The possibilities are endless in the Village for residents and visitors alike. #VisitPleasantPrairie to see what our remarkable community has to offer!

Colleen Myers

Marketing Manager


Over the past decade, I have worked in marketing, branding, communications, and graphic design for industries including retail, professional services, digital marketing agencies, and, most notably, local media. My media experience is what brought me to the Pleasant Prairie area in 2016 when I started working for the Kenosha News. While at the Kenosha News, I discovered a love of fostering collaboration and building strong relationships with local organizations, non-profits, and other members of the community. I look forward to continuing in a similar realm with Visit Pleasant Prairie by working with the community to showcase all that the Village has to offer for visitors as well as current (and future!) residents.
