Growing up in a suburb of Milwaukee, I’ve spent many years looking at UW-Milwaukee from the outside. Now as I’ve gotten the opportunity to learn more about UW-Milwaukee, I’m constantly impressed with the community I’ve found here on campus. It didn’t take long for UWM to feel like home for me. I can’t believe how quickly I’ve gotten to know people on campus, and I’m confident the same will be true for you. There is a strong sense of academic excellence on campus, and I also am constantly seeing a community that truly cares for each student at UWM. This opens up countless opportunities for all students on campus.

As a Transfer Student Admission Advisor, I work primarily with students who are transferring to UWM from another institution. I know as a transfer student, you come to UWM with unique life and educational experiences. Those experiences are valuable and UWM does a great job at honoring what transfer students bring to campus. I love to help transfer students find where they fit into the UWM community.

Whether you are a student who knows UWM is the school for them, or if you are just considering your options, please don’t hesitate to contact me! Even if you are years away from transfer, I’d love to hear from you now so we can work together to be sure you are on the path that is best for you.
