Meet Board & Brush Valparaiso Owners
Alyssa & Zach Breuckman
Alyssa and Zach haven't always thought of themselves as the DIY creative craftsman types. Alyssa graduated with an associate’s degree in Dental Assisting from Indiana University Northwest and works as a dental assistant. Zach graduated from Wabash College with a bachelor’s degree in History and Psychology, and he still currently works in his family’s automotive repair business.
As a couple, Alyssa and Zach established a newfound knack for expressing their creative energies a few years back when Zach surprised Alyssa with a new Cricut machine. Since then, the two have relished in the endless stream of creative projects that they have been able to create for others. They genuinely enjoy crafting custom pieces of art that bring smiles to the faces of those that request them. When approached by past owners, Annie and Artie Equihua, Alyssa was tickled pink to find that they saw her as a perfect successor to their studios. Both Zach and Alyssa are young and have a lot of passionate energy that they cannot wait to bring to both Board & Brush Valparaiso and Board & Brush Crown Point!
Zach and Alyssa graduated from the same high school a few years apart, yet never knew one another. It wasn't until a few years later that Alyssa's oldest sister and her husband introduced the two, and the rest is history. They have two adorable little boys, Hugo and Otto. Their little family would not be complete without their fur baby Oakley. The couple thoroughly enjoys hanging out with family and friends, playing outside with their boys and dog, and indulging in creative DIY projects whenever possible!
Sarah is the studio manager for the Valparaiso studio. Art has always been Sarah Rowe's passion in life. She went to school for Art Education at St. Joseph's College and has now been teaching Art for over 10 years. Board & Brush is the perfect blend of her interests...creating and teaching!
Sarah married her high school sweetheart, Marcus, and they have a beautiful daughter named Amy.
