Post SNC Update:
“After graduating from St. Norbert College, I moved to Madison to attend the University of Wisconsin Law School. While attending law school, I had the opportunity to do a variety of internships, including legal internships with the in-house counsels of Kohls Corporation and QBE Insurance Group Ltd., and a judicial internship for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. In addition to my internships, I was a Managing Editor for the Wisconsin Law Review and worked at the University of Wisconsin Law School’s Law and Entrepreneurship Clinic, which provides free legal services to early stage companies and entrepreneurs. With a growing passion for the business and transactional side of the law, and being a native of De Pere, I returned to the Green Bay area upon graduation to join Hager, Dewick & Zuengler, S.C. as an Associate Attorney. I assist the firm’s clients in a variety of business and real estate matters.
It is my hope that now that I am back in the area I can help give back to the St. Norbert College and surrounding community. St. Norbert College played a pivotal role in paving the way for my interest and success in law school, so it is my hope that I can pay it forward. Between the advice, mentorship, and legal internship opportunities from Dr. Jacobs as the pre-law advisor, and the Honors Program opportunities to travel to Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Spain to learn about different cultures and see a little bit of the world before spending three years at law school with my nose in books, I am truly proud to be a St. Norbert College alum and am grateful to be back in the area.”
We are so excited to see that Honors alumni continue to work in the surrounding area after graduating from St. Norbert! We cannot wait to see where the rest of Katrina’s future takes her!
