On May 29, 2018, Human Resources welcomed Maria Vander Heiden as the newest member of their team. She will start her new adventure as a Human Resources Assistant.
Prior to starting at UWGB, Maria worked for Team Industries as a Human Resources Assistant and also held a variety of seasonal positions–Apple Valley Orchard, Field of Scenes, and Green Handle Greenhouse. She has an Associates Degree in Human Resource Management from Fox Valley Technical College and is currently pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in the same area.
Maria was the president of the Wrightstown FFA and on the Brown County Fairest of the Fair committee. She enjoys fishing, hunting, raising animals for the fair, going to concerts, and anything outdoors.
Maria’s mom and dad are Gary and Wendy Vander Heiden, and she has three sisters (Brooke, Olivia, and Sarah) and a brother-in-law (Cole Van Dreel). She is from Wrightstown, Wisconsin, and says she is “very excited for the opportunity to work for the University of Green Bay and cannot wait to meet everyone!”
