Major: Business - Accounting Hometown: Allenton, WI
"I earned my associate degree at a community college in Saginaw, Michigan. Soon after, I joined the Navy, but I always wanted to go back to school and finish what I had started. After getting married, having two kids and serving six years in the service, I enrolled at UW Oshkosh.
"After 14 years, I had a level of maturity and wisdom about life that I didn’t have during my first college experience. I may have to work harder than some for my grades, but I believe the effort is worth it because of the confidence and pride that I feel after completing a class and doing well.
"I’ve also found that being active in student organizations like the Nontraditional Student Organization (NTSO) and the Accounting Club has given me a connectedness and support system that would be difficult to attain any other way."
