Background before UWFox

I graduated from Delaware Valley HS in Milford, PA in 1975.  I worked for my ex-husband as an Aesthetician and laser hair removal technician. I’ve travelled to India several times, as well as to many tropical destinations like the Bahama Islands, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Belize, and even stayed in a castle in northern England.

Why did you choose UWFox?

I chose to enroll at UWFox because I wanted to be associated with the UW System and UWFox was the best way for me to do that.

Have you chosen a major?

My long term goal is to earn my bachelor’s degree in Organizational Administration through UWFox’s collaborative bachelor’s degree program with UW Oshkosh.  My current and short term goal is to earn my Associate of Arts and Science Degree at UWFox, with a focus on Communication Arts.

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

I’m learning that my brain is really able to grasp lots of this complicated college stuff! I love my classes…my professors build on a base of knowledge and challenge me to “step-up” to the next level of my ability.

What are your career plans after UWFox?

I would like to be a leader…a leader who can motivate others to do their best and live life to the fullest.

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

I have two grown sons, age 29 and 27. Both of them live in New York City.  The older son is an investment banker on Wall Street and the younger son owns a moving and summer storage business.
