Meet the Members

Teresa Van Horn | Van Horn Chevrolet
Moved to Plymouth in 1966 from Chicago.  Began working at my father's Chevrolet dealership in 8th grade and continued working in high school and college summers.  Advanced through various positions until I became the owner of the Chevrolet dealer in 1995.  Mother of 4 boys - Patrick, Ryan, Brennan and Casey.  Enjoy just about any outdoor activity including running, swimming, softball, biking, etc.

Amanda Lennartz
I graduated from Tennessee Technological University in 2010 with my Accounting degree. While in college, I was very involved in my sorority Kappa Delta. That experience allowed me to grow as a woman, gain crucial leadership experience, and give back to the community. PBW allows me to continue that endeavor in my professional career, surrounded by women with the same mission and values. Since graduation I have been working in the energy efficiency sector, helping industrial clients with their improvement initiatives. Starting as a bookkeeper, I held many positions until obtaining the role of Vice President, overseeing all of the operations of the organization. I most recently became a first-time mom and am taking the time to enjoy my new little girl while also working to obtain my project management certificate. 

Dr. Cindy Munson | Chiro Health
Since 1994, Dr Cindy Munson has delivered high-quality Chiropractic care to practice members wishing to optimize their wellness potential and live a better life. She and her associate, Dr Londa Jozwowski, welcome every member of the family from babies, children and sports enthusiasts to grandmas, grandpas and moms-to-be.  She emphasizes a team approach with particular focus on pre-natal, pediatric and family care.  She has been voted Wisconsin Chiropractor of the Year by her peers for her excellence in the profession. She is a lifelong learner and continues to grow to help meet the goals of each individual seeking her care. Dr Cindy is married to Darren, a math teacher at PHS. They have 2 daughters, Maggie & Molly that keep them on their toes!

Kelly Reineke | Client Assistant R.W. Baird in Sheboygan
I am a Marketing graduate from UW-La Crosse and am currently a Client Assistant at R.W. Baird in Sheboygan. Before coming to Baird, I worked in the Human Resource/Employment industry in Appleton, WI as well. I am a Plymouth native and am lucky enough to have most of my family here in the area, as family is the most important part of my life. When I am not at work, I am usually shooting archery, hiking, volunteering with Sheboygan County 4-H, hanging with family and friends, or at DeO’Malley’s (my favorite restaurant!).

Michelle Manthey | Kohler Co. and Tile-It Designs, LLC
I work at Kohler as a Systems Support Manager – IT and have been with Kohler for 22 years.  I also help my husband Todd manage his business, Tile-It Designs, LLC offering professional sales & installation.  I earned my MBA in Business in 2010 from Lakeland University and have a BA in Marketing in 2002 from Lakeland University. I'm a certified instructor from Partners in Leadership teaching OZ Principles courses. I love being a part of PBW with a great group of women and giving back to our community.
