Upon completion of a two year internship in a Career Services setting during graduate school, I transitioned professionally into a Career Services Advisor role at Bryant & Stratton College for three years before entering into a role as Career Coach, and most recently, Assistant Director of Career Development & Coaching at Milwaukee School of Engineering. I have worked with both traditional and nontraditional students and student athletes in a wide range of degree programs assisting with professional development materials, including resumes, cover letters, interviewing, networking, professionalism, and job searching.

Current role description (both student & employer services):

As Assistant Director of Career Development and Coaching, I provide comprehensive career coaching to a diverse population while serving as a career specialist across multiple academic disciplines to provide guidance in the following areas: effective job search strategies, resumes, cover letters, interview and networking skills, Handshake & LinkedIn profiles, offer management, salary negotiations, professional communication, and graduate school applications.

Personal: born, raised, sports, hobbies, interests, family, etc.:

I grew up in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and went to school at University of Wisconsin Oshkosh where I earned my B.S. in Human Services Leadership in 2015 and my M.S. in Educational Leadership and Policy in 2017. My hobbies include watching sports, collecting sports trading cards, and being a huge Packers and Bucks fan! I enjoy listening to all different types of music and watching all genres of movies, but most of the time, I’m watching Harry Potter. In my free time, you can find me playing videogames or hanging out with friends and family playing cards and board games!
