It is no suprise the "teacher bug" is coming out more and more in this bride. The mother of the bride has been an elementary
teacher for the last 15 years. Josie teaches in two different ways: 1. At LMU, she has taught a Leadership class. This course is designed to develop students through self exploration and value identity. 2. Since February 2007, Josie has been certified
as a Spinning Instructor. Since then she has added an AFAA Group Exercise and PiYo certifications. This has resulted in her schedule include anywhere from 3-6 classes taught each week.
Always a Small Town Girl
Despite the length of time Josie has lived in Los Angeles, she continues to reflect on her small town roots. Growing up in
Newcastle, Wyoming with a population of 3,000 she had such experiences as learning to drive a stick shift Ford pick-up truck and driving an hour and a half to the closest shopping mall.
Ever since April 5th, 2008, Josie has been thrilled to be engaged! Stealing every free moment to brainstorm, reserach and plan
for her (and Lloyd's) wedding day. From trying on dresses, chatting with her bridesmaids, creating budget spreadsheets or compairing color schemes, the planning process has been fun so far! Now if only Lloyd would just let her plan it and leave his
opinions to himself! :)
Lloyd Leonard Ahlquist
Lloyd has been a performer for a very long time. He did plays in high school and started getting into improv comedy in college.
He now lives in Los Angeles where he auditions for tv and film projects and also is the creative director of a comedy theater. He also owns his own comedy touring company and has traveled the country performing for lots of different folks.
Lloyd started his business
Mission IMPROVable Inc. in Chicago in 1999. Since then, the company has expanded to included three separate touring companies as well as a west coast production arm. The original company Mission IMPROVable has grown into what is now entitled M.i.
Productions. M.i. Productions just launched M.i.’s Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica, CA: a new home for the best comedy and improvisation in the Los Angeles area! The new all-ages
theater offers improv, stand up and sketch comedy six nights a week in their newly renovated space located adjacent to Santa Monica’s bustling Third Street Promenade. Lloyd and the rest of the guys in the company plan to grow
the company even more in the years to come.
Lloyd is crazy about Josie and is ecstatic that she said "yes." He's been happy to help plan the wedding with Josie and is doing
his best to be a good "assistant."
