Bio

Kayla Kummer joined the College of Professional Studies in August 2022 as the new CPS recruitment specialist. In this role, Kummer assists in the development, management, coordination, and execution of recruiting potential College of Professional Studies undergraduate and graduate students to enroll while contributing to the overall recruitment and enrollment targets at UW-Stevens Point. CPS programs include the School of Business and Economics, School of Education, School of Health Sciences and Wellness, and Department of Military Science.

A second-generation Pointer, the 2017 School of Education graduate and Wisconsin Rapids native returns to UW-Stevens Point after four years of teaching English Language Arts at John Muir Middle School in Wausau. During that time, Kummer taught 7th and 8th grade and helped develop a program meant for struggling and at-risk students to re-engage in their learning and to push their goals and dreams further. During her time teaching, Kummer realized a love for helping students find their passions and perfect fit which led her to her new role at UWSP.

When not working, Kummer’s hobbies include cooking and baking, hiking, traveling, volunteering at animal shelters, and an occasional game or two against friends and family.
