Doug spent most of his career with several large and small companies who manufactured commercial equipment and products for the trucking industry. While living in Iowa, he worked in both field and corporate assignments in Sales and Marketing, serving customers throughout the Midwestern U.S. and across Canada.
As a lifelong student and advocate for continuous learning, Doug earned an MBA from the University of Iowa later in his career. This allowed him to test his interest in education by teaching as an adjunct for a community college in Iowa in the evenings while working as a sales manager by day. The experience as student and teacher, combined with a long term desire to return to Wisconsin, especialy NW Wisconsin, have been a great personal fit to become the Continuing Education Director at UW - Barron.
