Before entering the legal field, Gregory served in the United States Marine Corps and the Minnesota Army National Guard. She graduated cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law and completed her undergraduate degree in psychology at Augsburg College.

Stachia Ullmann, the program administrator for career services, works closely with both Lochner and Gregory to organize programs and events; manage the online career services management system; conduct outreach services to employers, students, faculty, and staff members; and coordinate office operations. Prior to joining the Career Services Office in 2005, Ullmann was a staff member in the Office of the Registrar.
