Andi Bowen, Cafe Manager
Andi and her husband Mike are extremely grateful parents of two daughters. As a graduate of UW-Madison, Andi utilized her mathematics degree to embark on a 25-year career in the financial services industry, initially as an actuarial analyst. She then worked in many other areas including investments, systems, marketing, software design, and financial reporting. Her work took her to Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and New York City before returning home to Milwaukee where she exited her career at Northwestern Mutual in order to homeschool her daughters.
She treasures her memories of homeschooling her girls – having the freedom to build their curriculum, to study along side them, and to spend days doing interesting activities and building lasting relationships with other homeschool families.
Her Aspirations: To understand and to fulfill God’s purpose for me.
Her Passion: Connecting with people at TSU in a way that makes their day a little bit brighter and shows the light of Christ shining through me.
Fun Fact: After decades of running for exercise – including 2 marathons – I sadly gave up running to save my knees. I am grateful to have discovered the Peloton bike 5 years ago because it revived my positive addiction to exercise.
