Kimberly Davis didn’t just find a career at UW-Green Bay – she found a calling: poetry. “I think what really sold English for me was my Women in Literature course. I wrote my first poem as my final. I had never written poetry before college.” Her creative writing has been featured in Creatures and Querencia magazines with other publications forthcoming.
