Brooke Bailey

It was my experiences at UW-Superior that molded me into the young adult I am today.”

For alumna Brooke Bailey, the University of Wisconsin-Superior played a very pivotal role in her career and in her life.

“I learned many life lessons that young adults must learn, not always choosing the politically correct path,” Brooke said. “However, it was my experiences at UW-Superior that molded me into the young adult I am today.”

Brooke was quite the busy bee during her time at UW-Superior. She played all of her four years on the women’s softball team, took part in intermural sports, club activities, was active in her faith, worked part-time and even lived in the residence halls for a semester.

“There were times my extracurricular activities took priority over my studies,” she said. “However, I had great mentors who always got me back on track.”

As such an active student on campus, the personal attention UW-Superior provides kept Brooke on the path to success.

“I have a lot of people to thank for my success, including two of my mentors at UW-Superior. Dr. James Lane was my Chemistry instructor who taught me that hard work is rewarded, and there are no shortcuts,” Brooke said. “Dr. Kurt Schmude was my advisor who provided support and encouragement along the way.”

After graduating from UW-Superior, Brooke went on to pharmacy school. She graduated from South University-School of Pharmacy in Savanna, Ga., with her Doctorate of Pharmacy degree in just three years.

“I secured a job at Walgreens in Eau Claire, Wis., where I worked as a staff pharmacist for just two years before being promoted to pharmacy manager at Walgreens in Rice Lake, Wis.,” said Brooke.

Support was Brooke’s key to success in her academic and professional life. One she wouldn’t have gotten without being a UW-Superior alumni.

“The experiences like mine are what make UW-Superior stand apart from the rest," she said.
