Colleen has been working in the foodservice industry since the seventh grade and has been with dining services at UW-Eau Claire since 2006. Her passion for providing excellent customer service and hospitality began when she was a child with her parents owning a neighborhood grocery store in our neighboring town, Chippewa Falls.

While attending technical college and UW-Stout in their Hospitality and Tourism program, Colleen worked at various supper clubs, bars and restaurants as well as managed the family grocery store. From there she used her education and experiences to open a successful restaurant in Chippewa Falls.

Colleen came to UW-Eau Claire in 2006 up in Riverview Café as a cook preparing pizzas and working in the grill. After a few years here, so then moved into the Catering Supervisor role where she has excelled at being a face of Blugold Catering both around campus and within the Eau Claire community.

In her free time, Colleen loves spending time outside doing various projects and maintaining her beautiful home located on the Chippewa River. She is an extreme naturalist and enjoys bird watching, kayaking, gardening and hiking with her favorite four-legged friend, Trooper.
