Bri Wisehart joined the iSchool on January 18 as a business administrative associate. In her new role, she will support the activities of the finance and human resources offices.

Originally from Mahomet, Wisehart received her bachelor's in leadership management and marketing, with a certificate in professional sales, from Northern Illinois University. She is currently pursuing her master's in human resource management from Rasmussen University.

"I am looking forward to getting to know the diverse group of students, faculty, and staff at the iSchool," said Wisehart. "I may not always have the answers to their questions right away, but I am looking forward to finding out those answers and helping out. I am excited to mix my background in both finance and HR and continue to learn and grow in my position here at the School."

In her free time, Wisehart enjoys going to the gym, spending time with her two rescue dogs, and trying new recipes.
