Hi everyone! My name is Brittany and I work with prospective and incoming students interested in attending UWM at Washington County or UWM at Waukesha (UWM College of General Studies). I love our great communities of southeastern Wisconsin and all the outdoor experiences you can enjoy, whether it’s hiking on the Eisenbaum trail in West Bend and greeting all the walkers and cyclists (and petting a dog or two); exploring the Waukesha Field Station on a cool, misty day in late Fall; or watching the sunrise over our Great Lake Michigan. We truly live in an amazing state, and I am proud of our UWM campuses to be in it!

I’m a former alumna of the UWM College of General Studies, so I really enjoy letting students know about the advantages of the small “hometown” campus feel. I love the College of General Studies for its proximity to Milwaukee, affordability, small classroom sizes, abundant ways for our students to get involved and feel supported by our dedicated faculty and staff, and all safely nestled in the Kettle Moraine. If you’re thinking about starting or finishing college, I can promise you that you’ll find your home and future at UWM at Washington County, UWM at Waukesha, and UWM.
