Tell us a bit about what you do here at UNMC.

I manage the Sorrell Center Convenience Store.

Leadership is one of UNMC's brand values. Tell us of a time you witnessed a person or group act demonstrate leadership at UNMC.

The students at UNMC demonstrate leadership on a daily basis. One student recently headed a donor match program. Her reasons for doing the drive were incredibly touching. I regularly see these types of actions.
