Bailey Schmid

Hello! My name is Bailey Schmid. I am a junior here at UWGB, originally from Madison, Wisconsin, studying Communication with emphasis in Journalism as well as Public Relations along with a Design Arts minor.  Currently I work both as a receptionist here at the Learning Center as well as a Student Ambassador, so naturally I love to interact with a variety of people to ensure complete satisfaction.  In my spare time, you can catch me in the turf gym or outside throwing a Frisbee around, or probably in the Union because I absolutely love food! I know that I will ensure excellent friendliness, problem-solving abilities, and communication to all students, faculty and staff that may need assistance.

I love the sciences and how all the different subjects (biology, physics and chemistry) can tie together to help us understand life and can't wait to help others grow their love for science as well.

Gillian Evanoff

Hello there. As you can see from the title above, I am Gillian Evanoff. Now entering my fifth year at this university, I have declared a major in Chemistry, and am also pursuing a minor in Education, with a Broad Field Science emphasis. Originally from Two Rivers, WI, I naturally enjoy small-town, outdoor activities such as skiing or hiking. However, I most often can be found practicing jazz on upright bass, or reading a book with some tea in hand. That is, when I'm not doing homework – as a Chemistry major, I tend to get a lot of that. Nevertheless, I am absolutely in love with Chemistry in as nerdy a way as possible, and I can't wait for the opportunity to encourage my peers to work to understand – and possibly even enjoy – the subject that may once have been a dreaded nightmare, such as it once was for me.

Eddi Flores

Greetings fellow students. I am pursuing a major in Psychology with an emphasis on the brain, behavior, and health and another major in Human Biology with an emphasis in health sciences. I enjoy supplementing my coursework with podcasts or books that are relative to the classes I am in.  I highly recommend this practice because it helps me appreciate the field that I am learning about more.  I love to see ideas manifested, so if you are willing to share an academic goal, I would love to help you achieve that goal. I look forward to the semester ahead. Cheers to education.

Jordan Molter

Hello, my name is Jordan Molter. I am currently a junior here at UWGB with a major in Human Biology and an emphasis on Health Science.

In what free time I have from studying, I enjoy to run and play guitar.
