Brief biography

Where I’m from:
Sun Prairie, WI

How I spend my free time:
I love spending time with family, friends, and exploring the Mississippi River and surrounding areas. However, my favorite activities are ones that include our golden retriever, Millie.

Why I love La Crosse:
La Crosse is the perfect place to live! It has a small-town feel, but there is still plenty to do. Between the Mississippi River and the Bluffs, there is so much to explore.

Kaylie Connaughty, University Marketing & Communications, designed Marketing Materials for "UWL Faculty-Led Education Abroad Programs". Thank you very much to Kaylie who created all the awesome marketing materials we use for our faculty-led programs! I have gotten so many compliments from faculty leaders and students. Kaylie designed all our materials with a consistent theme but made each design unique. Most importantly, she put up with IEE the last few months and all my ideas! Thank you for all your help, Kaylie!

THANK YOU to the many staff and faculty who greeted students and their families at the Verification Tent during Residence Life Move In Week. These welcoming faces helped ensure those who are vaccinated are recorded as such and those who are not vaccinated had completed a negative COVID test prior to move in. We could not have completed this large task without their assistance. They have helped keep our community healthy and contributed to the campus-wide endeavor of welcoming students back to campus.
