Welcome the Warhawk family! My name is Kristine Yesbeck and I have been an Academic Advisor at UWW since the AAEC opened in November of 2002. Since fall 2011, I have had the pleasure of advising and supporting students in Pathway for Success. I have a Bachelors of Arts in both International Studies and Spanish from St. Norbert College. My Masters of Arts is from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in Communication with an emphasis in Intercultural Communication. I am also certified as a Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF). I find it very rewarding to help students as they transition to college life and develop their academic and career plans.
Traveling and studying abroad have been a big part of my life and I encourage you to give it a try! I was an AFS summer exchange student in Santa Cruz, Costa Rica and I studied a college semester in Quito, Ecuador. I also taught ESL in Buenos Aires, Argentina and have traveled throughout Central and South America. My husband even proposed to me in Ireland! Outside of the AAEC, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons. We like to cheer on the Warhawks, Packers, Brewers, and any of my boys' teams. We also have an English Mastiff named Peaches. She is a registered therapy dog and often joins me in the Anderson Library as a stress reliever for UWW students. I look forward to working with you!
