Jodi SchleisName:  Jodi Schleis

Position at UWGB:  Associate Athletic Director of Finance and Human Resources

Summary of what you do:  Manage the financial aspects and as well as staffing requirements of the Athletic Department

How Long Have You Been Employed: 3 months


I came toUWGB after working at St Norbert College for 18 years as the Athletic Department Business Manager.


Whether going on vacation, sitting by a bonfire or having a Packer party, I enjoy spending time with family and friends the most.

I also enjoy reading, scrapbooking, making delicious meals and getting inspired by DIY shows on TV.


Something I have always wanted to do was operate a dog/animal boarding business.  I would be able to spend the entire day surrounded by and caring for all kinds of animals.

One thing people might not know about me is that I have a twin sister.  She lives in Elkhorn, WI .  We aren’t identical but it’s amazing to have such a close bond with another person all my life who is just a phone call away.


I’ve enjoyed meeting and getting to know my co-workers thus far.  I look forward to building great relationships and friendships here at UWGB.  Go Phoenix!

Eat fruit before bed today

No, we’re not messing with you. If you don’t believe us, believe the National Sleep Foundation, which reports that eating certain fruits may help you fall Kiwiasleep faster and wake up less often.

The key ingredient here is a hormone called melatonin, which helps regulate your sleep/wake cycle. When you eat foods that have a lot of melatonin, you may sleep more soundly. And, lucky you, some of the foods that contain melatonin include delicious fruits like tart cherries, bananas, pineapple, and oranges.

If you’re looking for something even more specific, try eating kiwi. A study showed that eating two kiwis before bed can increase your sleep duration by an hour over the course of a month if you have insomnia. And since kiwis taste like candy, you’re getting a double dose of goodness—deliciousness and slumber!

20 Employees Participate in the Bellin Run


Congratulations to everyone who participated in or helped with the Bellin Run in Green Bay last Saturday!  There were 20 employees who ran or walked, and some commented that the weather was really nice that morning (cloudy and not too warm), but when the sun came out later, it got hot! KimberlyPacker


“The Bellin Run is my favorite run/walk event. I really look forward to it every year because the whole community shows up to give their support or to participate. I’m thrilled that UW-Green Bay continues to organize a corporate team because it makes it so easy to pick up our packets right on campus. We also like to show our UW-Green Bay pride by wearing the team shirt on race day. ☺”

MartinRyanPic“My son, Rhys, ran his first full Bellin with the UWGB team this year.  He’s 8-years-old and he’s been doing the kids Bellin every year since he was 3 or so but this year wanted to run the full 6.2  He sprinted the last .2 miles and told me when he was done, “I felt like I was flying. I really was like a Phoenix.”
