You may have been wondering about the incredibly cheerful voice coming from the office near the front desk … Meet Becky Brown, the new director of career services at Globe University–Wausau!
Becky is a Wausau native, and attended local high school, D.C. Everest. She is a graduate of Marian University in Fond Du Lac. She is excited to be part of the Globe University–Wausau campus. She says, “I have really enjoyed how welcoming everyone on the faculty and staff has been. I can tell how invested each of them are in the success of the students on campus.”
Since Becky joined the Wausau campus, several graduates have been placed in their chosen fields. Becky is looking forward to more of these successes. “I look forward to meeting and working with the students in placements, resumes, and whatever other assistance they may need from me career-wise.”
Becky plans to develop relationships with various employers in the surrounding areas to increase the opportunities for students as they prepare for their future careers after graduation. She is also planning to develop even closer relationships with the staff and faculty on campus. She says, “I look forward to really working in collaboration with the rest of the faculty and staff here to ensure our students are self-confident, have the desire and drive, and are given the very best foundation for success; not only while they are enrolled as students here, but as they continue out into the work force.”
When Becky is not on campus helping our students spread their wings, she enjoys spending time with her children. She has a son who is a sophomore at the University of Minnesota–Mankato. He is a football player there, and she loves to spend time at his games with her daughter. She and her daughter also enjoy cooking and baking together, and enjoying the many outdoor activities available in Central Wisconsin, especially camping. She was recently district sales manager for Marcolin USA, which is an Italian eyewear company.
Becky has some favorite quotes that inspire her, and hopes our students find inspiration in them as well. “My favorite quote is, ‘If you really want to do something, you will find a way … if you don’t, you will find an excuse.’ I also believe in this, ‘You create your own happiness.’”
Welcome to Globe University–Wausau, Becky. We are very happy to have you here!
