Disability Services Case Managers
Hi my name is Kelly Johnson. As a Case Manager in the Disability Services office my favorite part of my job is getting to know students and collaborating with instructors. I have a Bachelor degree in Human Services and a Masters degree with a Student Affairs emphasis in Counseling Education. Prior to working at NWTC, I worked at a small liberal arts college helping students and graduates with career exploration and post-grad preparation. I also worked for a couple years doing marketing at a local law firm. In my current role, I have the opportunity to blend my passion and experience in higher education with my interest in marketing while focusing on the student experience. My caseload is focused on the Green Bay campus and working with students in the General Studies & Transfer program. In addition, I work with students and their partners who disclose they are pregnant. These students are protected by Title IX and also can receive accommodation, especially around the time of delivery. To contact me email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 920-498-5755.
Hi! I'm Sue Peterson and I am one of the Disability Service Case Managers. I have been working at NWTC for a long time…since 2003! While I have had a variety of job titles and roles, I have always worked with students who have disabilities. I work with students on both the Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay campus as well as our Luxemburg Center. On the Green Bay campus, I can work with all student who have disabilities, but my primary focus is students in the trades, engineering and education programs. I also work with many of the local high schools assisting students transition from high school to college. I enjoy helping students navigate that next step in their education, build confidence and independence as they move forward into successful careers. To contact me email Susan.Peterson@nwtc.edu or call 920-498-6267.
Hi my name is Mee Saykao and I am one of the Case Managers in the Disability Services Office. I came to America in 1979 from Laos and lived in Wisconsin since 1980. I received my Bachelor degree from UW-Oshkosh for Social Work and Master degree in Educational Psychology and Counseling from UW-Milwaukee. I am licensed by DPI and WTCS as a Counselor. I worked as a Social Worker for many years prior to joining NWTC in 2001. I started here as a Counselor assisting students with personal, career or academic needs. In 2013, I transitioned into my current role as a Case Manager working with students with disabilities. I had many opportunities before, but what I do now I get the opportunity to connect, build relationships and work closely with students. Being able to see students who despite having some challenges overcome those barriers and keep moving forward is rewarding. The services that we provide to individuals with disabilities are available at all NWTC sites. I am the primary contact person for students who attend Marinette Campus, Aurora, Crivitz, Oconto Falls and Shawano Centers or students who attend the Green Bay Campus and are accepted to any of the following programs: Business Digital Arts Hospitality Human Services Information Technology Law and Public Safety High school students from the Ashwaubenon, Bayport, Shawano or the northern Wisconsin school districts, please contact me as you prepare to make the transition to NWTC. I can assist you or your parents with questions about accommodations or getting started. To contact me email email@example.com or call 920-498-5691.
Hi – My name is Kelly Schumacher and I am one of the case managers in Disability Services. I have worked at NWTC since 2003 and have had a variety of roles during this time, all within the Disability Services office. This most current role is my favorite though – I love working with students and being a part of their team to help them along their educational journey! I can work with all students who have disabilities, but my primary focus is students in the Health Science Programs. I believe in creating an environment of respect and an office where students can come and work through any concerns they are having academically. My role is to provide you with options to allow you to become the person you want to be within the field that best matches you and your skills. I love watching students learn how to be their best advocates and develop their skills and self-confidence along the way towards graduation and employment. To contact me email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 920-498-6390.
Hello! My name is Karen Gebhardt and I am a part-time Support Specialist here in Disability Services. While my main focus has been on the closed captioning of the videos that you see in your classes, you can also find me at the front desk answering phones or getting students set up to take exams. I worked at Los Angeles Pierce college for many years as a lab technician in the Life Sciences Department but took a break in 2001 and moved back to Green Bay. I never lost my fondness for working with students though, so I was very happy to begin my career here at NWTC in October of 2019. Stop in and say hi sometime!
