I started at UW-Washington County in 1991. I was a new graduate who was working full time to support my educational pursuits. The community of educators and administrators at UWWC was exceptional - and encouraged me to further academic pursuits. I'm still in touch with some of them. In fact, I later returned to teach for UWWC. Now, as I'm launching my own business and book, UWWC has been fully supportive. This is a lifelong community - not just a place to go to class!
