Our Staff

Abby Ledvina Executive Director

As a native of Green Bay, I am honored to serve the students in our community. Since 2013 I have served this organization in a variety of roles, beginning as a student intern myself. My goal is to support students in faith exploration, meaningful conversation, and efforts to give back to our community. My vision is a world in which we respect one another and work together to serve the greater good.

Kathryn Walczyk | Spiritual Support

I encourage the spiritual life of each individual. I meet one on one with individuals, coordinate spiritual support for those seeking it, and offer spiritual and faith resources. I graduated from UWGB with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1984, hold a Master of Theological Studies degree, am a professional spiritual companion, continue  trauma informed education, and contribute in the areas of spiritual and faith based trauma and recovery.

Adriana Boesen

Hello! My name is Adriana Boesen and I am the Administrative Intern for this year! Some of my hobbies include drawing and jewelry making. I love jewelry making because it allows me to express my creativity and unique style. I enjoy experimenting with different colors, textures, and designs, and transforming simple materials into beautiful pieces of wearable art. There's something so satisfying about seeing a finished product that I've created with my own hands, and knowing that it's one-of-a-kind. Thank you for taking the time to read my introduction! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or if there is anything I can assist with in the future. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon!
