People of Brown County – Maryssa Paulsen
Though Maryssa Paulsen has only called Brown County home since 2015, when she moved here from a tiny town just north of Eau Claire (“I like to tell people my graduating class was 37.”) to attend the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (UWGB) – to her, it’s home.
The 25 year old said her family – parents, an older sister, a nephew and two younger brothers – also made the move to Northeast Wisconsin over the past few years.
Paulsen said she enjoys being outside – whether it’s reading a book outdoors, being by the water, going for a hike or embarking on day trips to Door County.
Her area of study at UWGB is similarly related – double majoring in environmental policy planning and public administration.
