The journey to my current position has included a double major at the UW-Madison in Communication Arts and English, working as a "Traffic Manager" for a marketing firm, and managing at a book store. A consistent thread in my life has been the desire to be a part of positive efforts in our community. I have enjoyed this through volunteer work at non-profit agencies, women's organizations, animal shelters and libraries. Through my position at the Waisman Center, I am able to combine my desire to support our community with work that creates constant opportunities to be a part of local, statewide, and national teams. As Data Coordinator for NIRs I train nationally and work locally to report grant information. Across projects at the Waisman Center I also get to join in both Support Staff and Management Staff committee meetings, support grant applications, and manage media.
