Monica R. Knusta
My name is Monica (Rewolinski) Knusta. Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, I am the youngest of 8 children. I was a member of St. Veronica, where I attended grade school, studied music (violin) and was a cantor. I graduated from St. Mary's Academy, and completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the College of Santa Fe in Santa Fe, NM. After graduation, I set out on a journey to see the world. While working at Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee, I met the love of my life-Brian Knusta. We were married in 1995, and moved to Wauwatosa, WI where we raised our two boys, Jonathan and Alexander. I continued my education at Cardinal Stritch University, where I earned a Master's Degree in Business Administration. Over the past twenty years, I have worked in the financial services field for American Express, Ameriprise and Edward Jones. Our family moved to Lublin in 2010 when Brian took over management of the Knusta family farm. Although we lost Brian in a tragic accident in 2016, the boys and I love the farm, the community and the many friends we have come to know. Idz z Bogiem! Go with God!
