Jill Campana
As a small business owner, a lover of coffee, dance and chocolate, I've got it made. My husband and I own The Nutman Company USA, Inc., Java Dancer Coffee Bar, the Really Cool Gift Shop and Sacred Space Studio. All four business are under one roof. I've been a dancer at heart since I was a little girl. I was so delighted when I found Nia, a wonderfully expressive and powerful fitness fusion dance exercise. I've been teaching Nia for 14 years now and have begun to add other movement modalities to my class offerings (meditation, Reiki, Kai and more). The Nutman business has been in Wisconsin for over 20 years; we are well known in the area. We do fundraisers for many corporations, hospitals and organizations. The Really Cool Gift Shop is an eclectic blend of groovy gifts for the spirit and soul. Java Dancer Coffee Bar is a gathering place for the community, a place to unwind, to meet, to just kick back and enjoy a cup of java.
