Academic Department Associate

 (920) 424-1042    Sage Hall 3003

Cindy has been a member of the Classified Staff at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh for over 31 years (she came to UW Oshkosh right out of kindergarten!). She currently can be found working in the Department of Journalism.

Cindy is thrilled to have the opportunity to make a true difference on campus by being involved with the many roles that classified staff have been afforded since 2000.  She has served as the chair of the Classified Staff Advisory Council (CSAC). She has been trained as a SAFE volunteer.  She has served on the CSAC Leadership Series Planning Committee, the CSAC Awards and Recognition Committee, the CSAC Grants Committee, the Administrative Support Team which works closely with the Registrar’s Office, and she is a Steward for the Wisconsin State Employees Union (WSEU).

Cindy loves to entertain, too. She has developed a reputation of “baker par excellence” among friends and co-workers. She also enjoys creating crafts and sharing her gifts with others.  Her home is a bit quieter now that her children are grown and exploring the world on their own. Many of the students who have worked with her over the years have considered her their “mom away from home”. Cindy believes in living each day to its fullest and that every moment in life should be savored.
