Estela Villanueva-Whitman

Editorial Team Leader

I'm a lifelong Midwesterner and am involved in many activities throughout our community. As the mother of three boys, including a cadet at the United States Military Academy—West Point, I've learned to let the little things slide and have developed a new appreciation for soccer and the military. I spend a lot of time giving back through volunteering, such as recruiting co-workers for the Stelter Stampede Air Climb team, and also like to garden, bike, hunt for antiques and renovate our 100-year-old home.
