Wausau Academic Advisor
Based at Northcentral Technical College
Main Campus, D163
Hello! My name is Justin Maki and I work in a dual-role in the Adult Degree Program as both an Admissions and Academic Advisor. My office is located at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau, WI, but I often travel to meet with current and prospective students all over Central and Western Wisconsin. I have been with the Adult Degree Program since August 2012, and thoroughly enjoy every aspect of my job.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling both from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Before coming to UW-Green Bay, I worked at Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi as an Academic Advisor for both undergraduate and graduate programs. Within the field of higher education, I’ve been able to gain experience in career and mental health counseling, student engagement research, outreach and instruction, and admissions and academic advising.
I have a passion for helping prospective and current students see their educational dreams come true. This journey isn’t always easy, but the opportunities you can unlock for yourself will all be worth it in the end. Lucky for me, I will be there helping and encouraging you from start to finish!
