Favorite thing about working at Carthage
“My favorite thing about working at Carthage is the ability to collaborate with a diverse set of teams across campus, from admissions and financial aid to the Office of Equity and Inclusion and The Aspire Center. We all have the same goals in mind, which is to ensure that our students receive the highest quality education possible and are prepared to enter the workforce and their communities as thoughtful and productive members of society.”
Amber lives in downtown Kenosha and enjoys the public farmer’s market, summer concerts in the park, Public Brewing (started by a Carthage alum!), cocktails and jazz, and much more.
