Fun Fact: I was the Homecoming King at UW-Parkside in 1997!

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in communication from UW-Parkside that year and have been working in higher education admissions ever since. I currently work with transfer and adult students at UWM.

I was born and raised in Milwaukee and still love the city. Forbes magazine recently listed Milwaukee as one of the top 15 emerging cities, and I can tell you that being closely connected to it has big advantages, from amazing internship and research opportunities to a wide array of cultural and fun activities to take part in.

If you are an adult or transfer student, I encourage you to reach out to me so we can discuss how UW-Milwaukee can be a home away from home for you.
