What is your best memory from your time at UNMC?
So far, it's been meeting all the great people down here. I am looking forward to making many more memories in the coming four years.
Our four brand values are leadership, commitment to excellence, working together and being a trusted resource. Pick one and tell us a time you witnessed it embodied at UNMC.
My D1 class is amazing ... everyone is out to help everyone else. We came into dental school together as a class and quickly learned that we will need each other not only to get through our four years of dental school but to make it a fun experience as well. I moved down here not knowing a single soul and my classmates made my transition easy. Nebraska just fits.
List three things people may not know about you.
- I grew up on a farm with the closest town having a population of 14 people. I graduated high school with 11 other classmates.
- I have a cat named "Butters" and a hermit crab named "Tweek."
- I did my undergrad at North Dakota State University in Fargo so when I'm not cheering for the Huskers, I'm cheering for the Bison!
