Background before UWFox

I attended Fox Valley Lutheran High School and graduated in 2009. I started working at Ridgeway Country Club during the summer of 2008. I worked in the outside operations handling members’ clubs and cleaning carts, along with being responsible for the driving range. I currently work there, but now I work as a server and bartender inside the bar and grille. It is a great job and I love working with the members.

Why did you choose UWFox?

I chose UWFox because I was unsure what I wanted to do after high school. I had no idea where I wanted to go to college, so I chose to start at UWFox. I also picked UWFox because I wanted to continue playing basketball. I played here for two years. I’m really glad I did too because this year we had a very successful season and it was a ton of fun. We took second place in our conference and also second place at the state tournament held in Waukesha. Our team this year had the best record in the campus history. Playing sports also helped me develop friendships I would not have developed without being in involved with them.

Have you chosen a major?

I’ve not yet chosen a major. I honestly don’t know what I’m going to do about choosing my major. I was thinking about going into business, but now I think I’m going into the medical field now. I am going for my CNA (certified nursing assistant) license this summer. I would like to possibly get a nursing degree and then go on to medical school and become an anesthesiologist assistant.

What are you learning that you find interesting and rewarding at UWFox?

UWFox is great because the class sizes are smaller and the instruction more personalized. The professors and teachers here are always willing to help with whatever you may need.

What are your career plans after UWFox?

After this year I am planning on transferring to UW Oshkosh, but not for sure.

Other interesting things about yourself that you’d like to share?

I’m a huge sports fan. I love playing sports as well as watching them. Go Packers go! I love playing basketball, golf, volleyball, tennis, and running. In the summer I love to water ski. I have one younger sister, Ashley, who is 16 and attends FVL and a brother, Alex, who is 10 and goes to Immanuel Lutheran School. I recently volunteered at the VITA tax site at Goodwill helping people file their tax returns. That was a new experience for me but I learned a lot from it. I would someday like to travel places in Europe or Asia and experience the different cultures in the world.
