Hello WASB Alumni!

Lindsay and I met as members of WASB in Spring of 2005, and although we don’t wear our rugbies anymore, the iconic long-sleeved polos remain prominently displayed in our closet, serving as a constant reminder of the great student organization that brought us together.

After graduating from UW-Madison in ’05 and ‘06, we both earned master’s degrees in Higher Education Administration from Loyola University Chicago. Since leaving graduate school, we have built our careers in higher education administration; myself in philanthropy and Lindsay in student career coaching. Lindsay has also turned her passion into an entrepreneurial endeavor – LWK Coaching, LLC.

With both of us continuing to work in higher education back here at UW-Madison, we have gained an even greater appreciation for the immensely positive impact WASB had on our collegiate experience. As members of WASB, we met so many unique, ambitious, fun, and smart people.  Many of the friendships we made as members of WASB are still very strong today.

In Fall of 2014, when we were asked to host a Dinners On Wisconsin (DOW) event, we quickly agreed. We ultimately hosted a dinner for seven UW-Madison students at our home in Madison. During dinner we had a chance to learn more about the students’ unique backgrounds and their career aspirations.

We really enjoyed hosting the dinner and would highly encourage other alumni to host a future DOW event. WASB and UW-Madison have added so much positivity to our lives, so it was really meaningful to have an opportunity to engage with current WASBies and other terrific UW-Madison students. We are also thrilled to share that we're expecting our first child this fall, and can't wait to welcome the newest mini-WASB! 

On, Wisconsin!
