BIO on Deana. Hello, My name is Deana Zentner and I am a senior resident of 22  
years in the Town of Rutland, Dane County. It has been an honor to serve on our town  
board for 5 years. The demographics in our town of approximately 2,000 residents  
indicate a high population of seniors. For 4 years, I enjoyed serving on an area  
Municipal Group that addressed the needs and services within the Oregon Area Senior  
Center. My personal experience includes caring for aging parents, which included  
copious research and extensive hands-on experience. My career background is  
grounded in elementary education. I taught in Wisconsin and also in California for  
several years. I love learning and researching, and would immerse myself in providing  
excellent service in any committee I am in.

-Bio- Prior to retiring from a career as a structural engineer, I volunteered at our  
neighborhood senior nutrition program meal site and I was a care giver for an aging  
parent. Since retiring; I have continued volunteering at our neighborhood senior meal  
sites, helped staff at our neighborhood food pantry, delivered food to older adults thru  
the NewBridge-Madison FoodBridge program, and obtained a ServSafe certificate  
allowing me to be a substitute meal site coordinator in the senior nutrition program.  
Currently I utilize my ServSafe certificate as a substitute meal site coordinator, filling in  
for meal site coordinators throughout all of the Madison meal sites when a meal site  
coordinator is not available. In addition, I staff our neighborhood food pantry prior to,
