Growing up, Paige Radke enjoyed solving problems.
“I liked puzzle games and trying to figure out how everything falls into place,” Paige recalls.
That passion drove her as Paige studied economics and Spanish at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It led her to a master’s degree in finance analysis and a Certificate in Investment Management from UW-Milwaukee
“I really wanted to do something that was social and helpful,” Paige says. “I didn’t want to just sit behind a desk with my headphones on managing a bunch of money.”
While completing her training at UWM, Paige became a financial intern at Landaas & Company, where she found her interests fall into place.
“I like client interaction,” Paige says. “I like that I actually get to talk to people. I’m not selling anything to them. I’m talking to them, hearing what they have to say and trying to solve their problems.”
Paige’s commitment to helping people extends to giving back to the community. She volunteers as a mentor in UWM’s Multicultural Mentoring Program and is active on the boards of the Rotaract Club of Milwaukee, the Lubar School of Business Alumni Association and the River Revitalization Foundation.
Paige and her husband, Ethan, live in downtown Milwaukee. Besides problem-solving as an advisor and volunteer, Paige enjoys cooking, exercising and exploring Milwaukee’s waterways.
