Meet Emily Kuntz, University Apartments Trades Supervisor

Photo of Emily K.Greetings! My name is Emily Kuntz and I am the new Trades Supervisor at the Apartment Facilities Office. I grew up in Minnesota, lived in Austria and Germany for a few years as a foreign exchange student, and then in Pennsylvania for graduate school. After exploring various jobs, I eventually entered the steamfitting apprenticeship here in Wisconsin. I worked for area mechanical contractors for 7 years, and then started State service at the Department of Transportation and the Department of Administration. I am excited to join the UA team and look forward to meeting and working with others in this dynamic and busy community! In my spare time, I enjoy blacksmithing, home projects, and travel with my partner, which often involves hiking. Two cats and a Border Collie-Australian Shepard mix dog keep me well entertained at home.
