Her TEDx talk, "Resilience: The Art of Failing Forward," has been viewed by thousands of people. Her writing has been published in both the New England Journal of Medicine and JAMA. She leads conferences and retreats for professional women through Brave Enough.

Since May 1920, the UNMC Faculty Women's Club has provided and promoted social connections and leadership opportunities for women throughout UNMC's ever-expanding campus. To date, their members have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for scholarships given to students in all colleges at UNMC.
