I became a member of IBEW 965 when I was hired by Alliant Energy in 2015 as a field technician in Janesville, WI. My prior experience is service work with HVAC for 6 years and a technical degree from Blackhawk. I spent two years as a Field Technician learning about the natural gas pipeline system and operations. From there, I chose the Gas Technician apprenticeship and obtained my Journeyman card in 2020. I began getting more involved with the Local in my leadership role as Unit 8 Executive Chair. As more time went on, I attended trainings at the University of Wisconsin School for Workers and classes and conferences with the IBEW International Office, which led me to where I am now as the IBEW 965 Assistant Business Manager. I enjoy the opportunity I have been given and hope to keep making a difference in the Local and keep the membership strong.
I started with Alliant Energy/WP&L in 1993 at South Area. Went to Rock River in 1995 and stayed there until they closed the plant. I bumped back to South Area and wored in the warehouse. In 2017 I went to the transformer shop.
I have been involved in the union throughout my career. I have been a steward, Chief Steward, Unit 8 Chair, organizer and was appointed to the President's position in November 2018.

I started with Alliant Energy in 2008 as a Line Tech Apprentice in Ripon. Ten years later, I moved to Beaver Dam, where I am now a Lead Line Tech and Lead Steward. I became involved with the IBEW 965 while in Ripon as the Lead Steward and soon joined the Renew Committee. In 2018, I was appointed Vice Chair of the Renew Committee. I represented members of Alliant Energy on the 2022 Negotiating Committee and was elected President in June 2022.
I started my career with Alliant Energy as a Customer Service Representative in the Call Center in 2014. In 2015, I moved into the Billing department, where I have been ever since, as a Customer Support Representative. In 2022, I served on the negotiating committee, joined the Women’s Committee, and was elected as IBEW Local 965 Treasurer.
I started with Alliant Energy & Local IBEW 965 at the call center in Madison January of 2012. In September of 2012 I took a position at our Janesville Dispatch office as a dispatcher. I loved my job there but wanted to be in the field more and took an Engineering Tech apprenticeship position in February of 2014. In March of 2017 I completed the apprenticeship and now am a journeyman Engineering Tech for Beloit. As soon as I finished my apprenticeship I joined the RENEW committee and have been active in that since. In September I became the Recording secretary and hold that position to date. My newest involvement in the union is as chair of the newly formed Women's Committee with Holly Kaiser. My personal goal is to get younger people and more women involved in the union. We all are the future of our union.
