UW-Green Bay’s Division of Outreach and Adult Access is proud to announce the hiring of UW-Green Bay alumna, Donna Mleziva, ’06, as the Division’s new Design, Marketing and Media Specialist. This position became available when long-time designer Dan Moore, ’00, left that post to accept an appointment as UW-Green Bay’s new Campus Photographer and Videographer.
Hailing from nearby Luxemburg, Donna is a 2006 graduate of UW-Green Bay, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and the Arts, with a Graphic Design and Photography emphasis and a minor in Art. Donna returns to her alma mater with ten years of experience as a graphic designer, designing print work, developing and managing websites and serving as a photographer. Donna comes to UW-Green Bay most recently from the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay where she serves as a Graphic Design and Sales Specialist with The Compass, the official Diocesan news publication. Prior to that she served as a Communications Specialist at UW Oshkosh for seven years where she earned several awards and accolades for her design work, including:
UW Oshkosh Website, Platinum Hermes Creative Award, 2014
Undergraduate Recruitment Campaign, Platinum MarCom Award, 2012
Engage Magazine, Gold MarCom Award, 2012
American Marketing Association, Higher Ed. Team Marketer of the Year, 2011
UWO Everywhere You Go!, Best Mobile App, Gold Hermes Creative Award, 2011
And MANY more!
“I absolutely love working on a college campus,” says Donna. “I enjoy the academic environment and am excited to work with Outreach and the rest of campus to create design work that will help communicate the university’s mission in the community. Also, as an alum I have always had a soft spot for UW-Green Bay. I’m looking forward to coming home!”
Donna and her fiance’, Alex, are busy planning a November wedding and are happy to move closer to family and friends. When Donna is not deep in wedding planning and designing award-winning creative, she is involved in community band as a flutist and is also a runner, having just registered for the Cellcom Green Bay Half Marathon.
Donna’s first day at UW-Green Bay will be Tuesday, February 16. Notes of congratulations can be sent to her at email@example.com.
