Hello all! I am an Admissions Counselor here at UW-Milwaukee serving students from Central Wisconsin as well as Walworth, Racine, and Kenosha counties. I grew up in the Fox Cities area and just recently moved to Milwaukee! I can’t wait to explore what our great lakeside city has to offer. Prior to joining the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at UWM, I taught middle school for three years in Wisconsin and Denver, CO. As a first-generation student in my own college experience, I was involved in study abroad, club sports, research, and intramurals.

UWM offers so many exciting opportunities for you to dive into, from a ton of student organizations and inclusive resources, to engaging research opportunities. One of my favorite things about UWM is the location, as we are super close to the fun events of the city and also a short walk to the beach. I really enjoy chatting with prospective students to discuss how UWM can fit their needs, as well as helping with the application process. I’m looking forward to connecting with you!

Please let me know what questions you may have. Hoping UW-Milwaukee can become home for you!
