Oh my goodness I am SO GLAD you are here! I’m Kailagh, and I am excited to be your Admissions Advisor over the course of your journey with UWM! Originally, I am from the Greater Boston Area but decided, with a leap of faith, to go to a small school in Northern Wisconsin for my undergraduate degree.

The same reasons I decided to get my degree there, are the same reasons I now love working with the UWM community. Right away I felt at home. The more I walked around UWM’s campus on a visit, the larger my smile became. I could see what the campus community was like in those moments; diverse, accepting, engaging, thriving, passionate, determined, and so much fun!  It’s when I knew I wanted to work for UWM and continue on with my career in higher education. Now I get the wonderful opportunity to share this amazing community with you!

Just as I found my fit here, I want to help you find yours. As your Admissions Advisor, it is my main goal to make sure that smile on your face grows bigger the more you know about UWM. If you have any questions let me know, I am here as your resource!!

PS. GO PANTHERS!
