Alumni Spotlight: Eliza Williams

In this week's Alumni Spotlight, we catch up with alumna Eliza Williams.

What are you doing now?

I am a Billing & Insurance Coordinator at Cedar River Counseling & Full Time Mom of 2.

How did APS prepare you for this role?

APS helped to teach me how to communicate and work with others well; to solve issues and problems no matter the situation or how hard it seems.

What is your advice for current Packers?

Join the Club, Take the extra elective (art, music, language, shop class), play the sport, etc.! And when you are trying to figure out what you want to do with your life, look back on what your favorite part or class at school was and run with it! Finding something you enjoy doing or want to do rather than feeling like it's just "work" is the best!

Who at APS inspired you?

All my teachers played an integral role in shaping who I am!

What was your favorite meal in the cafeteria?

Beefy Nachos or Max Sticks!
