She is currently pursuing a MBA with an emphasis in Human Resources from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. She also has an Associate degree from MATC in Visual Communications – Multimedia Design.

Liana has worked with the University of Wisconsin – Madison for five years in payroll and benefits.  In her position at the DFM, Liana can help you with any payroll or benefit questions you may have. She can provide information regarding your paychecks – how to set deductions, enroll in direct deposit and help you access your earnings statements. Additionally, she can provide information regarding your leave balances and assist you in locating and completing leave reports. Finally, she can help navigate through the sometimes confusing information regarding insurances offered by UW-Madison.  If you have questions about enrollment, canceling or maintaining benefits, she can provide this information to you.
