Lookin’ at ‘U’ – Stacie Ortmeier

picture disc.Quick, think of five things others should know about you.

That’s the theme behind a series in UNMC Today called “Lookin’ at U.”

Each Thursday, we will randomly select a medical center employee or student to feature.

This week, we feature Stacie Ortmeier, community based research coordinator in the department of internal medicine.

Here, in her own words, are five fun facts about Stacie:

  • My first job was walking beans on our farm near Dodge, Neb. My siblings and I got paid according to the number of rows we could handle without falling behind. I made the least since I was the youngest with the shortest arms.

  • I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1995 and completed my dietetic internship at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Ill. I’ve also lived in Milwaukee, Chicago and Mexico.

  • Writing is something I’ve enjoyed for a long time and I will complete a graduate degree in English next year.

  • I am passionate about volunteering at the UNMC SHARING Clinic as an interpreter and dietitian.

  • My favorite place in Omaha is the Holland Center.
