From the Navy to FVTC to UWGB, Amanda Couch is on track to an HR career. 

Amanda Couch knows a thing or two about determination. 

The 35-year-old U.S. Navy veteran enrolled at Fox Valley Tech as a full-time student in 2014, and has since earned three associate degrees, all while raising her young daughter. 

Not only that, Amanda is now well on her way to earning a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a Human Resources Management emphasis at UW-Green Bay. It’s part of an agreement that allows FVTC grads to transfer to UWGB with junior standing. 

“All of my 64 Business Management credits transferred, as well as some Accounting credits,” she explains.

Amanda’s FVTC degrees include Accounting, Business Management and Human Resources. Her goal upon graduating from UWGB is to work as an HR professional and ultimately lead her own team.          

Veterans Unite

Some of Amanda’s fondest moments at Fox Valley Tech were spent in the Veterans Resource Center, where she not only worked, but also relaxed. “My time at FVTC was wonderful. I loved meeting fellow veterans, sharing stories and laughing together,” the Black Creek native explains. “The Center was great in helping whenever I had a question about my benefits, classes or needed help with life issues.”
