What is your best memory from your time at UNMC?

It's hard to pick just one memory. I have had the opportunity to make so many great friends here and I think that is one of the things that I am so grateful for from my time at UNMC.

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.

Being a trusted resource -- I have seen this value embodied at UNMC through many of my rotations this year. Many of our preceptors are former UNMC students and I am so amazed by the care that they give to their patients and the trust that their patients have in them. As a student who is getting ready to enter the profession, they offer me an outstanding example of the way I would like to practice.

List three things people may not know about you.

  • I have an 18 month old son.
  • I played volleyball for Emporia State University.
  • I was born in Texas.
