My name is Thomas Berst and I am senior here at UWSP. I am majoring in business administration and marketing. After I graduate I am not sure if I will be entering the job market or pursuing my MBA, but either way I am planning on staying in the central Wisconsin area. Originally, I’m from the Chicago land area, but my family has had a cabin in Wisconsin and we have been coming here since I was a kid so Wisconsin has always felt like home to me whether we were swimming at the lake in the summer, hiking in the fall, or snow skiing in the winter. Currently my favorite pastime especially in the Fall is hiking with my girlfriend and going downtown to go get dinner and then heading to get some ice cream. I’m excited to have an opportunity to work with Portage County Business Council and other local businesses in the area!
