Lynn Harris
  • Name: Lynn Harris
  • Hometown: Omaha, Neb.
  • No. of years at UNMC: 23 years as of March 9

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

I help customers coordinate their printing projects to get the best prices. I help with anything from posters and color copies to getting your newsletter designed, printed and mail. We have a full service print shop here on campus.

Commitment to excellence is one of UNMC's brand values. Tell us of a time you witnessed a person or group demonstrate commitment to excellence at UNMC.

I have witnessed my coworkers' commitment to excellence over the past few weeks as they work late to get newsletters out on time. We have had someone out with the flu and everyone in our department has done something extra to keep the work going.

What is your favorite winter activity?

I don't care for the cold. I love staying in and watching movies with my husband Corey and kids Symone, Cori and Xavier.

List three things people may not know about you.

  • I come from a large family of 10 kids (five girls and five boys). My family moved here from Montgomery, Ala., in the mid 60s. Only two of us were born in Omaha - my sister Bonnie and myself.
  • I attend line dancing classes at the North YMCA three times a week. Our class has performed at different events in North Omaha to promote exercising.
  • I love road trips. Each year I travel to my family reunion in a different state.

Congratulation Lynn. Anytime that I needed help with something Lynn was always there to answer my question. If she didn't have the answer at that moment she would follow up and call me back. Keep up the excellent work Lynn.
