Meet the Academic Advising Staff

 

 Academic Advisors:

Kathy BundaloHi, my name is Kathy Bundalo. I am the Director of Academic Advising at Alverno College.  I have also been an academic advisor since 1997. I earned a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse, and a M.S. in Educational Psychology, Guidance and Counseling from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I eagerly look forward to the start of each semester and can’t wait to see you on campus. My best advice to you as you prepare for college is to get involved in campus life. Try out new experiences and opportunities, and consider a study abroad experience as part of your academic life.  You can study abroad for a semester, a year, or even a short-term class.  Whatever the choice, the experience can be one of the most exciting and meaningful of your college career. 

On behalf of everyone in Academic Advising, I welcome you to this community and look forward to assisting you to achieve your goals!

Kate TischHi there – my name is Kate Tisch and I am the Assistant Director of Advising. I have been at Alverno since 1994 and really enjoy working with students in this unique learning community. My undergraduate degree from UW-Madison is in Exercise Physiology – therefore I am living proof that your Bachelor’s degree does not necessarily lock you into a specific career path. When we meet, ask me how I ended up as an advisor! While in college, I would encourage students to explore their interests/passions, get involved and have fun! I loved my college experience and want my advisees to feel the same. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my family (hubby and two kids), playing competitive volleyball, reading, going to Badger/Packer games and attempting to improve my golf game.

Kim Miller

Welcome to Alverno!  My name is Kimberly Miller and I am an Academic Advisor and 1997 Alverno Alum. The favorite part of my job is working with students to assist them with their academic plans, so feel free to call or visit often. When I’m not working with students, you can find me playing with my two little boys, reading or watching movies. The best advice I can give you is to make sure you study abroad while you’re a student here.  It is one of the most amazing adventures you can give yourself as an Alverno student. Trust me – I know from experience. I look forward to meeting you!

Pamela FeldkampGreetings!  My name is Pam Feldkamp. I am an Academic Advisor. I have been working at Alverno since 2006, but began as an Academic Advisor in 2009. I have a B.S. in Communicative Disorders from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh and a M.A.E. in Postsecondary Education/Student Affairs from the University of Northern Iowa. My experiences in college both in and outside the classroom helped me learn so much about myself and the person I want to be. College is a wonderful journey and I want to be able to assist students along that path. I look forward to meeting you and working with you during your time here at Alverno.  Something good for you to remember as you proceed: “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage” -Anais Nin

Beth MonhollenHello! My name is Beth Monhollen (technically, Dorothy Elizabeth, but I’ve been called Beth since the day I was born.) I earned my bachelor’s degree from Alverno in 1997. I majored in English and minored in Spanish and Theater, because those were the things I loved. I’ve had quite a few different jobs in the time since I graduated, but I’ve happily worked at Alverno since 2003. I’m one of the luckiest, happiest people that I know, partly because I love my work! I have a Master’s degree in Student Personnel Administration (essentially, college student development, so that I can do what I do, only better.) And, I continue to act for local theater companies and practice my language skills whenever I can. I love to learn and to explore and I love to help others to do the same. One of the most important things I learned in my undergraduate years was to be open to new experiences and new people, to take unfamiliar classes even if I didn’t “need” them. My hope for your college years is that you will do the same.

Marie Ebling 

Welcome to Alverno and to Advising! My name is Marie Schoeppach (Ebling) and I’m an advisor. Being a college student is a unique time in a person’s life.  It’s full of opportunities to learn and grow both in and out of the classroom.  That was my experience while earning my B.S. in Communication Studies at UW-La Crosse and my M. Ed. in College Student Affairs at the University of South Florida.  It is my hope that your time at Alverno will be full of experiences that allow you to grow in many new and diverse ways.   In my role as an advisor, I hope to help you find and reach your potential.  My favorite quote can also be good advice for anyone in their college journey:  “Don’t confuse your life and your work, the second is only part of the first.” – unknown

Promise Scholar Advisors:

Martha Johnson  Welcome to Alverno!  My name is Martha Johnson and I am the Promise Scholar     Advisor in the Academic Advising Department.  I earned a B.S. degree in Health Education from U.W.- Madison and a M.S. degree in Educational Rehabilitation    Counseling from U.W. – Milwaukee.  Your college years mirror life by introducing you to greater responsibilities, multiple opportunities, diverse ways to explore who you are and who you want to become.  Most importantly, your time in college allows you the time to fully explore what unique gifts you bring to your career and community.  I love working with students to encourage them to maximize their own inner resources, find their own voice and pursue a career path that honors their interests and strengths.  My favorite quote is from Ralph W. Emerson: “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

Administrative Assistants:

 Diane TourangeauHi, I’m Diane Tourangeau and I’m one of the Administrative Assistants here in the Advising Office. My primary responsibility is to maintain the Official Files of Alverno students, from registration until graduation. I will use my skills to assist you in getting an answer to any questions you might have. My advice to students is to choose something you totally enjoy, even if it isn’t the highest paying job. Life is too short to work at a job you dread going to each day. When I’m not here at Alverno, I enjoy time with my family, my new grandson, my house of cats and dogs, and pursuing my love of gardening.

Kelly G. 2011

Hello, my name is Kelly Griffith and I am one of the Administrative Assistants in the Advising Office. I am a 2011 graduate of Alverno, where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Professional Communication.

I was born and raised in Milwaukee and I love everything about the city! I’m a big Wisconsin sports fan, especially the Milwaukee Brewers, Green Bay Packers, College football and basketball.  I love spending time with my family and friends, but my most favorite thing to do is to spend time with my niece and nephew. They have so much joy in life; they always brighten up my day.

Being back at Alverno and the Advising Office is wonderful!  I enjoy being a part of this tight-knit community. Stop by the Advising Office and I will be happy to direct you to the correct Advisor, answer any questions that you may have or just stop in to say hello. :)

New Administrative Assistant in the Advising OfficeHi, I am Karen Romantini and I am one of the Admininstrative Assitants in the Advising Office. What a pleasure it is to offer my administrative support to Alverno’s Advising Team! The eclectic background that brought me here contains the common thread of community building, vibrant education, and celebration of diversity; so it feels like a great fit to be working here. My life outside the office revolves around hiking with my dogs, tutoring students learning English as a Second Language, and enjoying the artistic endeavors of my creative family (art…music…food…lucky me!). That family is glad to have me working in the inspirational environment of Alverno where I am sure to discover new talents of my own!
