Words that describe UMR: imaginative, creative, innovative

Advice to college students: believe that you bring value to the institution, the classroom and the cultural competency of other students

When I’m not at UMR, you can find me: at church, teaching bible study or mentoring youth in the community

Favorite quote:

“My job is to bring the water to the horse, but I can’t make him drink.”

Reason you like working at UMR: Diversifying the health care workforce is critical to our nation, Minnesota, and communities of color, and my position allows me to be part of a solution that also supports UMR students.
