Sharon Sumner

Position title: Degree Audit Encoder



Sharon was a financial aid recipient who vividly remembers her first work-study position as a dishwasher in a student cafeteria.  She is most grateful that her career path led her, through many twists and turns, back to a university campus.  She enjoys digging in deep to identify and resolve technical issues, and also collaborating with campus partners to find new ways to best serve students through degree audit tools and processes.

Sharon holds a J.D. from UW Law School, as well as a B.A. in Political Science and Journalism from Indiana University-Bloomington.  In addition to a Certificate in Women’s Studies from UW-Madison, she also has completed several professional development certificates in the area of Business Analysis.
