Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Christina, and I work with incoming freshmen at UWM. I’m originally from Chicago but am loving getting to call Wisconsin home and discovering all that Milwaukee has to offer! I love trying new restaurants (especially finding new sushi ones), grabbing some Insomnia Cookies, and exploring Walker’s Point and the Historic Third Ward. Being from Chicago, I loved going to Lake Michigan in the summer and am thrilled that I still get to be right by Lake Michigan, as it’s one of my favorite spots.

I found a passion for working in higher education while still an undergraduate and am thrilled to get to share with students what opportunities are available to them at UWM. I love UWM, because it’s right in the city, and our students have so many opportunities, whether it’s internships or just finding fun places to explore and experience. I love how small and easy to navigate our campus is, so it’s not intimidating, but still offers all the advantages of a large research university. I enjoy continuously finding new things to love about UWM, and I love the opportunity to show students how they can also find their home at UWM!
