Annie Schmitz

Hatchery Manager

I got my B.S. in Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay then pursued my M.Sc. degree in Freshwater Sciences and Technology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences. My M.Sc. thesis focused specifically on the embryonic and larval development of yellow perch. I joined The Farmory team in the beginning of 2020 and am excited to continue to see our mission grow.

Americorps Vista

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin—Green Bay. I lived and worked for a while in South Dakota before moving back to Green Bay. I had been following the progress of The Farmory since the early days of its development and when I heard there was an open AmeriCorps VISTA position I jumped at the chance to be involved. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such a fantastic team, and I am confident that the experience gained through my role at The Farmory will aid my personal growth as well as my professional development.

I retired from Wisconsin Public Service after 39 years as a I/E Crew Leader and I presently hold a Wisconsin Journeyman Electrician license. I started as a Farmory volunteer in early 2019 working 2-3 shifts a week. After one year I joined the staff as a part time technician.
