Meet Your Faculty- Dr.Amy Verbos

Department: Finance and Business Law

Amy Verbos

Where are you originally from?

I was born in St. Joseph, Michigan, raised in Racine, Wisconsin, and have lived most of my life in either Michigan or Wisconsin.

At what point did you decide you wanted to be a professor?

After 17 years of practicing corporate law, I decided that I wanted to do teach in order to give back to the next generation.

What do you enjoy most about teaching at UWW?

The students, of course! I love getting to know my students and helping them in any way I can.

What are your hobbies outside of teaching?

I enjoy reading, making jewelry, and cooking.

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

I am a citizen of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi.

What advice can you give to students about their college career?

Make the most of your college experience. Learn as much as you possibly can. Stretch yourself. Get involved in extracurricular activities. Attend speaker events. Find your passion. If you love what you do, then you won’t work a day in your life.

Fast facts:

Favorite restaurant: Fork in the Road, Mukwonago, WI
Least favorite subject in school: Chemistry
Favorite vacation spot: Minocqua, WI
Early bird or night owl? Early bird
One thing you cannot live without:
A cat to share my life, currently, Snug. (Well, my husband comes first, but I think of him more as a person than a thing.)
Favorite quote: It is hard to choose just one, but here is a good one from Mahatma Gandhi: “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
