Wayne Whitmore, Community Social Service

Faculty photoI am an avid (but arguably, not that great) fisherman. I am married and have a rambunctious 2 year old daughter.

I attended Lake Superior College and the University of Wisconsin-Superior, where I obtained a BS degree in Psychology and Philosophy. I was a McNair Scholar and a founding member of Psi Chi. I subsequently attended The University of Wisconsin in Madison, from which I graduated with a MS degree in Rehabilitation Psychology.

I have diverse interests, including Native American studies, history, women’s and gender issues, and Advocacy for persons with disabilities. I have worked previously with the State of Minnesota as a Rehabilitation Counselor and with Metropolitan Life, where I maintained a person-centered focus in working with those with disabilities. While with the state, I worked with a wide variety of age groups and disabilities. I am passionate about and believe in the right of persons with disabilities to fair and equal treatment.
