Hi there! I’m Genevieve (she/her) and I’m an Admissions Advisor here at UW-Milwaukee. As a born-and-raised Chicagoan, I am excited to show fellow Illinoisians all that UWM and the city of Milwaukee have to offer. Between UWM’s world-class faculty and the countless opportunities to apply classroom learning to real world contexts, UWM prepares students to succeed upon graduation and beyond.

There is also so much to explore across the city of Milwaukee. Some of my favorite spots include the Milwaukee Public Market, Atwater Beach, and the shops and restaurants along Brady Street. I also love attending seasonal events across the city, like Summerfest, the Milwaukee Winter Farmer’s Market in the Mitchell Park Domes, and the Milwaukee Film Festival.

Prior to joining the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at UWM, I worked in new student orientation at a variety of colleges and universities. I am passionate about building relationships with prospective and admitted students and preparing them to embark upon their college experiences. Please reach out if you’d like to get connected and discuss how UWM and Milwaukee can become your home away from home.

Go Panthers!
