College of Business Welcomes New Faculty and Staff
New Interim Dean's Assistant
We are pleased to welcome Sandy Klaboe to the College of Business Office of the Dean. She will be providing temporary administrative and secretarial support to the staff while we search for a permanent replacement for Nancy Jackson, the former dean's assistant. Sandy and her husband, Chuck, relocated to the Chippewa Valley from Marquette, MI one year ago to be closer to their son.
A graduate of the University of Minnesota-Moorhead, Sandy began her career as a high school business education teacher in Minnesota. Because Chuck was in the Air Force, she has lived in Michigan (twice), North Dakota, and Spain, where she taught adult education classes at the Torrejon Air Force Base in Madrid.
For the past twenty years, Sandy worked at Northern Michigan University where she was the student employment coordinator for Dining Services. In this position she hired and assigned approximately 450 student employees, processed payroll of approximately 475 student and full-time employees, and created and prepared distribution reports, forms, correspondence, newsletters and student employment handbooks.
Sandy's hobbies include walking, reading and reconnecting with military friends via Facebook. While she enjoys being "semi-retired", Sandy applied for an LTE position at UW-Eau Claire because she missed the atmosphere, energy and change of pace that a university campus offers.
