Charlier honored as UWP Alum
PLATTEVILLE - The University of Wisconsin-Platteville takes time each year to recognize alumni who have achieved great honors. A 1987 graduate, Monique Charlier, has been included in this year's list of recipients.
Charlier will be recognized in the College of Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture. Charlier transferred from UW-Stevens Point to UWP and changed her major to construction management.
"At UWP I received a practical, hands on education that gave me a great foundation to enter the construction industry," Charlier said.
Charlier currently is employed by The Jansen Group of Milwaukee as the division vice president / senior project manager.
In her free time, Charlier has been studying blacksmith and does architectural metal work, which she started reading.
Recently The Business Journal selected Charlier as a Woman of Influence in the Community Supporter category for her involvement in the Milwaukee community.
"I am very involved with the community and have served on several volunteer boards," Charlier said. "I currently serve as a board member for the Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity and Agape Community Center." She was also selected by The Business Journal as a 40 under 40 recipient.
"I haven't been back to UWP for many years. I passed through earlier this year on my way to Dubuque and it was nice to see all of the new buildings that have gone up since I left," Charlier said. "When I come back in October it will be very nice to visit the new facilities and how the campus has changed."
