Annie Gesteland

Annie Gesteland

Annie Gesteland has helped hundreds of college students grapple with the day-to-day challenges of parenting. And along the way, those students and their children have helped Gesteland get on track as a successful teacher.

When the Burlington, Wisconsin, native arrived on campus as a freshman, she stopped by the Campus Child Center looking for a chance to volunteer. That’s what Gesteland did her first semester.
