Hi! My name is Hannah and I am a sophomore here at UWGB. I am from Monticello WI and am majoring in Spanish with a minor in Human Biology. I loved my freshmen seminar because of the small class sizes and all the resources that the class had to offer and now I am able to help other freshmen make the adjustment to college by being a peer mentor.

I am a Junior at UWGB, I'm studying Political Science and Public Administration. I love being involved on campus and I am an officer for the campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity and I am a sister in the sorority Zeta Omega Tau. I love being a peer mentor because it gives me the opportunity to help first year students transition to their lives in college more smoothly and I also enjoy sharing my experiences to motivate them to be the best versions of themselves.

Hailing from California, I've been in Wisconsin for 3 years and at the University of Green Bay for 2.5. My major is Environmental Policy and Planning with an emphasis in Planning and a minor in Global Studies. For my career, I'm hoping to partner with non-profits centered around community building, social justice, environmental protection or all maybe even all three. I love to travel, read, make music, draw and ride my bike.

“Our peer mentor was great at helping us with whatever troubles we had: school, residence life, and family. The GPS program was a success because of the dedication given by all the Peer Mentors willing to take the time to help us freshmen transition smoothly.”

“I also got a lot of help from my peer mentor. She was always willing to listen to any of us who had concerns about anything! I know she puts in a lot of time, and we really appreciate it.”
