    In September 2014, I competed for the title of Miss Wisconsin 2015. I didn’t get too far, but I met some really charismatic people.

 JamieL

Jamie Lancelle

Human Resources Intern – 2015 Spring Semester

Major in Business Administration with Human Resource emphasis
Minor in Human Development

  1. Where is your home town?
    I am originally from Chicago, Illinois, but currently reside in Howard, Wisconsin.
  2. What are you hoping to do post-graduation (career, more school, etc.)?
    After graduation, my career goal is to work in a Human Resources department. My plan is to take the exam to obtain my HR certification as well. As far as more schooling goes, I have entertained the idea of going for my master’s degree, however, I think at this point that will be something I possibly tackle further down the road.
  3. Three words that describe you.
    Hardworking, Honest, Caring
  4. Do you have a favorite quote?
    While this could be a quote, I view it as more of a motto. Either way, it is certainly something that I have lived by…NEVER GIVE UP! There are times in my life where the easiest thing would have been to give up, but I have always been determined to keep pushing through the challenges.
  5.  What do you like to do in your spare time?
    When I have spare time, most of it is spent having fun and making memories with my children. From taking a walk to watching a movie, playing rounds of laser tag, going on a road trip, or watching them play sports, they keep life interesting and very busy. There is usually never a dull moment!
  6.  What’s on your bucket list?
    A personal bucket list item, which I will finally be able to cross off in December 2015, is to graduate from college!  A family bucket list item is to travel with my children and see all of the states. I have two boys who love sports, so it is a goal of ours to visit, or at least take a picture by the sports stadiums in each state.
