Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens

I advise students in the Personal Finance and Retailing & Consumer Behavior majors.  I serve as the Director of Academic Advising and Development, administer the schedule of classes for Human Ecology’s four academic departments, and coordinate Human Ecology’s commencement celebrations. My absolute favorite part of the job occurs three times a year when I send lists to the Registrar’s Office with the names of Human Ecology students who have just earned their degrees… I’ve been a Badger long enough to understand just how proud students should be of earning a UW-Madison degree and I’m grateful to be able to work with them along their paths to success!
