For over 40 years, Roger was a vital member of the career counseling arena. He assisted countless individuals as they planned and managed their careers by helping them think about their interests, values, skills, goals and preferences. He received his B.S. and M.S.E. from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh. His first job was working as a career counselor in the Oshkosh Job Service Office. Roger spent the last 20 years of his career as the Director of Counseling and Testing for the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. Roger was instrumental in developing the Career Development Facilitator training with Judy Ettinger from the Center on Education and Work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
