FRONT OFFICE STAFF
Chief Operating Officer
Lisa brings her extensive business experience in driving strategic growth & team performance along with her passion for baseball to create a memorable experience for fans.
Baseball has been a constant theme in Lisa’s life. From her parents meeting at the ball diamond to meeting her husband as part of a softball team, many of her memorable life moments can be tied to baseball.
When she is not at Wisconsin Brewing Company Park, she can be found at many of the local ball diamonds in Waukesha, Oconomowoc and across the country watching her kids play baseball and softball. Occasionally she’ll even be spotted at T-Mobile Park in Seattle rooting on her favorite Mariner, Jarred Kelenic.
Primary Responsibilities: LC DockHounds Foundation, Merchandise
A Swiss Army knife can be described as a multi-functional tool that provides help and assistance in a variety of ways. Trish is nothing short of a Swiss Army knife when it comes to sports and the DockHounds.
Trish has worked locally for the Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Milkmen, Milwaukee Wave, and the Wisconsin Athletic Club before becoming the DockHounds General Manager. She is currently one of only two female GMs in the league.
Because of her time commitment to the DockHounds, Trish is often seen walking out to the retention pond located behind the leftfield wall at Wisconsin Brewing Company Park; dreaming about it being one of the great lakes that make up the Lake Country area and thinking about people chanting her breakdancing name (ZAP) over and over.
Primary Responsibilities: Corporate Sponsorship
ENTERTAINMENT AND FAN EXPERIENCE MANAGER
If you’ve been to a DockHounds game, then you have seen Lauren’s handy-work first-hand. Lauren’s passion for creating an incredible gameday experience drives her every day. Being able to create valuable memories for individuals in Lake Country and seeing the smiles on faces in the crowd is very special to her.
In her rare free time, Lauren enjoys jet skiing and knee boarding in the summer and works as a makeup artist, helping to make brides beautiful throughout the winter.
Lauren started as an intern with the DockHounds after being the Captain of the UWM lacrosse team. She has also spent time mastering her ability to entertain a crowd while working with the Milwaukee Admirals, Milwaukee Bucks and the Lakeshore Chinooks.
Primary Responsibilities: Game day operations, Internships
STADIUM OPERATIONS MANAGER
Zach can be found at DockHound games helping our guests enjoy their experience by making sure that the stadium is operating smoothly. He truly enjoys creating lasting memories for our fans and especially for the youth baseball teams that have an opportunity to play on the same field as our DockHounds players.
In 2021, while attending the University of Dubuque, Zach finished 10th in the Nation at the DIII National Shot-Put Championships. Prior to becoming a DockHound, Zach worked for the Madison Capitols Hockey Club as the box office manager and completed a summer internship with the Milwaukee Milkmen (but we don’t hold that against him.)
Primary Responsibilities: Field Rentals, Batting Cages, Event Setups
MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER
Bryan comes to us with an unrelenting love for baseball and a desire to tell everyone he can about it. Working with IndyCar Racing, the Milwaukee Torrent and numerous youth sports organizations has prepared him for his new position. Bryan’s time working with a marketing agency escalated his knowledge of marketing strategies, planning and execution.
Though his primary role with the club is to handle much of the outward messaging of the organization, Bryan also is responsible for connecting the club to the community. He can often be seen at community events, festivals, and gatherings throughout the Lake Country area. Bryan coordinates updating the website, social media, emails, and all things marketing for the DockHounds and WBC Park.
When he is not thinking about new ways to get fans excited to come to the stadium, Bryan enjoys spending time with his family. Primarily he enjoys attempting to look youthful while helping his daughter practice her soccer, basketball and softball skills, though he fails most times.
Primary Responsibilities: Marketing, Social Media, Website Maintenance
FOOD AND BEVERAGE DIRECTOR
DIRECTOR OF SALES AND ACTIVATION
If you’re interested in group outings, baseball, and WBC Park then Justin is your go-to guy. As the Director of Sales and Activation for the DockHounds, Justin loves working with those that are enthusiastic about building a memorable experience for their party, anniversary celebration, work event, or other group gathering.
Having played baseball since he was 10 years old, Justin traveled the world, playing tournaments in Australia and Puerto Rico. Though his playing career helped pay for a bag of seeds, his love of everything baseball makes his role with the DockHounds a perfect fit.
Beyond baseball, as if that’s a thing, Justin enjoys the idea of becoming a member of Louie’s TailWaggers Club once his landlord approves him buying an English bulldog. He then will take it after DockHounds games to Lake Tichigan and the Fox River. Even though he played in two college World Series with the Wolfpack of Madison College, Justin’s biggest claim to fame is certainly winning his 2022 fantasy football league.
GROUP SALES ACCOUNT MANAGER
When you own a black lab named Shadow, that is full of energy, you must match that energy level yourself, every day. Tristan is certainly up to that challenge and loves every moment of it. Being a dog person isn’t a job requirement for the DockHounds staff, but if it was, Tristan wouldn’t have any problem filling that.
Tristan initially was an intern during our inaugural season. His passion for seeing groups of families, friends and co-workers enjoy their time at WBC Park helped solidify his fulltime status with the DockHounds. As a Group Sales Account Manager, Tristan is here to help make sure your group event is fun, entertaining and runs smoothly.
For as much as he loves the water of Lake Country, Tristan’s claim to fame thus far in life is certainly bowling not one, but two 300 games in his life. Ironic thing is they both happened when he was 21.
GROUP SALES ACCOUNT MANAGER
When you are dedicated enough to something you love doing, it’s almost like you don’t work a day in your life. Josh has that kind of love for organizing groups to come to WBC Park and take in an evening of fun, building memories and celebrating whatever the event is that you are putting on. As a Group Sales Manager for the DockHounds, Josh loves getting to meet new people from all different areas of life. Schools, churches, dance teams, banks, corporate businesses, all have different backgrounds, and Josh is here to learn more about your group and how we can tailor a group experience at WBC Park to something special.
During the brief off time that we allow Josh to have, he enjoys spending time on Shawno Lake and its great fishing spots. If you happen to be in the area, stop by the Sand Bar Bar and you just may run into him enjoying a beverage. If you’re lucky enough, you may even get the chance to hear him recite the entire movie, Benchwarmers, after he has watched it over 1,000 times.
Everyone loves dogs when you work for the DockHounds, and Josh is no different. What’s more dog loving than wanting a Red Labrador and naming it Scooby Doo? Zoinks Scoobs, if you want to bring a group of friends to the ‘Hounds game this upcoming summer, contact Josh today and he’ll get you set up with a perfect evening.
EVENT SALES AND PLANNING MANAGER
You might not see him all the time, but you can spot him in his sunhat from miles away. Troy can be seen outside of game days doing his thing, and running events with a big ole’ smile on his face. You might even catch him busting a move here and there.
When he’s not planning events, you can catch Troy walking his own hound, Taz, on his way to festivals or local events in the community. He just can’t get enough of the Lake Country community.
Before going into event planning, he was a semi-professional breakdancer in Des Moines, Iowa. From there on out, Troy grew a passion for all things events and festivals. Prior to joining the DockHounds, Troy was the Special Events Manager for Kegel’s Inn where he helped build and operate a free ice rink for the community, established and managed the War Memorial Beer Garden, and assisted with planning and organizing of Milwaukee Oktoberfest.
Primary Responsibilities: Managing events, Event planning

And with our Lake Country style in the game, the energy is unmatched.
