April is Riverside Junior Woman's Charity (RJWC) month here at Live Here Riverside. We are highlighting the many great things that the Juniors do right here in Riverside in three mini episodes featuring three different members and their stories.
My first guest in this special series is Joanne Schiemann. Joanne currently serves as the Vice President of Operations for the Riverside Junior Woman's Charity.
In our conversation, we discuss how Joanne and her family found their way to Riverside, how she values her involvement with the Juniors as a stay at home mom, and why she decided to join the Board to do even more to help make the Juniors thrive.
I hope you enjoy getting to know our neighbor Joanne Schiemann.
One of my favorite parts of this podcast has been meeting so many of our neighbors with successful niche businesses that we might not have otherwise known about and getting to share their story. Today's guest is yet another great example.
My guest today is Romney Cirillo. Romney is the founder and owner of Something Fishy, an aquarium installation, design, and maintenance company serving the greater Chicagoland area.
In our conversation, we discuss how Romney found his way to Riverside and how a summer internship in corporate America was all it took to know he wanted to run his own company. He also shares his plans for expanding Something Fishy to provide mobile aquarium therapy at children's hospitals here in Chicago and potentially across the United States.
I hope you enjoy getting to know our new neighbor Romney Cirillo.

Time is a luxury item for parents with small children so whenever you can knock out multiple things at the same time, it's a big bonus. That idea is something that today's guest kept in mind when launching her latest business.
Nina Makovski is the owner of Waterlemon Kids, a one of a kind indoor play, coffee, and boutique shop located nearby in downtown La Grange, IL.
In our conversation, we discuss how Nina and her family decided to leave LA returning to their midwest roots when their daughter was born, how their desire to provide a place with something for everyone in the family lead to opening WaterLemon Kids, and how Riverside has delivered in spades providing the neighborly interactions and small town experiences that they were missing out west.
I hope you enjoy getting to know our neighbor Nina Makovski.
Welcome neighbor and thanks for stopping by. My name is Brian Plain and I'll be your host.
