Hello! My name is Caitlyn, and I’m an admissions counselor primarily working with students from Milwaukee high schools.

Prior to coming to UW-Milwaukee, I found a passion for higher education working directly with students during my undergrad as a resident advisor. I strive to build connections with prospective students and help prepare for the next steps in their academic journey.

Having grown up in Milwaukee, I have loved seeing the city grow and all the opportunities it has to offer, especially for our students at UWM. Aside from the many great opportunities, there is so much to do in Milwaukee! I love finding new restaurants, exploring downtown and the east side, and attending sporting events like the Bucks or Brewers games.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. I look forward to hearing from you.
