I am a Wisconsin girl, born and raised, and I am excited to share all that UWM and the city of Milwaukee have to offer! I grew up just outside the greater Milwaukee area, so when I was looking for a school to complete my master’s degree, I naturally felt drawn to UWM — and I haven’t left since.

Milwaukee has become one of the coolest cities for young professionals in the Midwest, and I absolutely love exploring every nook and cranny. It has been very exciting to see how the city has evolved over the years and how UWM has adapted the urban atmosphere into research and internship opportunities for students of all majors. My goal as an admissions advisor is to help students meet their career goals and find a home here at UWM. I believe everyone should be able to find a university that suits their unique needs, and I feel strongly about UWM’s inclusivity and ability to provide access to a top research institution for everyone.
