Tell us a bit about what you do here at UNMC.
I am the office associate in health services research and administration in the College of Public Health.
Being a leader is one of UNMC's brand values. Tell us of a time you witnessed a person or group act in a leadership capacity at UNMC.
Here in the College of Public Health, we have had a couple of strategic planning retreats. Our own John Adams, Ph.D., facilitated the retreat, which turned out to be a great success. It was wonderful to see everyone -- faculty, staff and students -- come together and brainstorm on ways to improve the College of Public Health experience.
What is your favorite activity during the holiday season?
I like to snowboard (when I'm in Denver), and I like to cook for the holidays.
List three things people may not know about you.
- I lived in Denver for 10 years.
- I was once the minister of music at my church.
- I have eight grandkids.
I have had the opportunity to work with Denise and have found her to be very helpful. She has a great sense of humor and she smiles a lot. It's interesting to find out Denise was born in New York; I also was born there in West Point. Thanks for sharing.
