President
My name is Kay Schroeder and I am a National Certified Guardian since 2009 and President of Corporate Guardians of Northeast Wisconsin since its inception in 2006.  My background includes a degree in Human Services and Business from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and over 15 years of professional experience in various human service related fields including work with individuals with developmental disabilities, mental illnesses, infirmities of aging.  I am also honored to have been given the opportunity to serve as President of the Wisconsin Guardianship Association, a four year term that began June 2012.   I, along with my husband, started Corporate Guardians of Northeast Wisconsin out of a long standing passion for working within the field of human services and the desire to own and operate our own business.  I am passionate about the work we do and the people we serve and feel strongly in pursuing excellence in this field not only for our wards but our employees as well.  I am extremely proud of the team of people who help us achieve these goals and am honored to call them our Corporate Guardians of NEW family.
