Member Spotlight - Andrea Jorgensen

I was born and raised in Mequon and graduated from Homestead in 2006. I then attended the University of Denver and graduated with a B.S. in Marketing a year early in 2009. I LOVED Denver, and ultimately chose it for its proximity to the mountains. It doesn’t get much better than skiing every Friday through Sunday in the Rockies!

When I graduated, I followed my passion to New York where I spent three years working in fashion. First for Carolina Herrera, then for Oscar de la Renta working in sales as the counterpart to buyers getting the designs in stores.

When I moved back to Milwaukee I started working for Baird where I have been for the past five years. I started on the equity trading floor and quickly realized I loved the market, but the institutional side of the business lacked the relationship aspect that I thrive on. I transitioned to Private Wealth Management in 2015 and up to our Mequon office a year ago where I’m able to help people with comprehensive wealth management and financial planning to give them peace of mind and help them achieve their financial goals.

I live on Milwaukee’s lower east side with my yellow lab, Zoe. In my free time I love to travel, ski, road bike, read, golf, and spend time with family and friends.

Mequon OKs scaled-down Concordia building, half the size of the original proposal

By Jeff Rumage, Now News Group

MEQUON - An interdisciplinary building at Concordia University Wisconsin has been downsized to 40,000 square feet, less than half the size proposed when the building was originally presented to city officials in October 2016.

The building is named the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center, in recognition of a gift made by the Robert W. Plaster Foundation intended to support Concordia's vision of promoting "free market principles across the disciplines of healthcare, education, science, technology and the arts."

The once-four-story building has been scaled down to a three-story, 46-foot-tall building. Cliff Mayer, principal of Mayer Helminiak Architects, told the Mequon Plan Commission on Jan. 15 that the building was scaled down to lower the cost of the project.

The commission unanimously approved the university's building and site plans at the meeting.

The building will still feature large glass windows overlooking Lake Michigan. The building will also have a two-story connection to Luther Hall on its north side. 

Concordia expects to begin construction in March and have the building ready for occupancy by January 2019.

The new facility will house classrooms, lecture halls and faculty offices for schools of business, education, hospitality, event management and health professions.

Concordia's top degree-seeking programs of study are in health care and business, so the university has needed space for those fields for some years, said Concordia University Wisconsin spokeswoman Kali Thiel. 

The building will also provide a physical space to build upon the collaboration that already exists between the health care and business schools, Thiel said.
