Hi, my name is Judy! I'm originally from Northern Ireland, and I came to UWGB when I was 19 years old and completed my Social Work degree. I volunteered in the center for 1 year, became an intern, and then began to work full time during my OPT year 2012-2013. I left Green Bay to travel and to date, i've been to over 50 countries. I love to travel and meet new people. I have completed my masters in management at UWGB. While here, I love to be involved in different projects and programs promoting faith, and social justice. I love to listen to others, their dreams, visions, goals and their struggles. It's through these conversations and relationships we create new growth, development, leading towards positive change through projects and programs.
Environmental Series & Drum Circle Coordinator
Women's Circle & Wim Hof Breathwork Experimental Educator
I graduated from UWGB with a degree in Environmental Science in 2013. My first job out of college was running community gardens, promoting healthy living in an ecofriendly way. Afterwards, I travelled a bit, worked in conservation in Arizona and Horticultural Therapy in Hawaii, taught in Thailand, and spent a couple years in New Zealand and Austrailia galavanting around and living in intentional communities. Five years later, I decided to return back to Green Bay to reunite with family and am grateful to be back at the Mauthe Center.
Composting & Aquaponics System Coordinator
Hi! This is my third year here at UWGB studying both environmental science and environmental policy and planning. The Mauthe Center has given me the opportunity to explore new ideas and pursue them.
Kathryn Walczyk: The Conversation Room coordinator
Hi, my name is Kathryn Walczyk. Most call me Kathy. Natural abilities, life experience, and a genuine love and concern for people led to my work as a spiritual companion, workshop facilitator, advocate, and encourager. I support the Mauthe’s efforts to welcome people from all walks of life, all faith and spiritual traditions, and those who choose to be free of religious affiliation. A bachelor of the Arts degree from UWGB, a Master of Theological Studies degree from St. Norbert College, a three-year spiritual direction preparation program from the Franciscan Spirituality Center, ongoing trauma informed care training & study, and the practice of Vipassana meditation support my work.
THE CONVERSATION ROOM
I was invited to set up a room where students and community members can meet one-on-one with qualified and trained spiritual companions, campus ministers, life coaches, and professional listeners. The Conversation room is here to support students and community members on their spiritual path. All people are welcome to these services. For more information or to find a good fit for yourself, contact the Mauthe and they will direct you my way. Or contact me direct at
Hello I’m Kaelen! I’ve been a part of the Richard Mauthe Center since my junior year at UWGB. I have learned so much about the importance of Health and Wellness at the Richard Mauthe Center along with leadership and teamwork skills. I often attend and help host many programs at the center including the Women’s Circle, Drum Circle, 2For2, Alpha and Inspiring Women. While attending these events I have been fortunate enough to meet such wonderful people within the community that have helped lead me to other organizations like Life Church Downtown in Green Bay. I’m currently a senior and studying marketing at UWGB and I’m minoring in art and the humanities. I am looking forward to meeting you.
Hello I’m Cassie!
