During Black History Month, UNMC acknowledges the outstanding accomplishments of our Black faculty and staff members.

What are the most notable achievements in your professional journey?

I have been blessed with the opportunity to contribute to both the academic and administrative health care worlds. I have cherished the opportunity to mentor young physicians and develop meaningful relationships with colleagues and patients over the years while contributing to meaningful changes to the way care is delivered in the organization. These have been more notable to me than the specific titles I have accumulated.

What advice do you have for aspiring Black health care professionals entering your field?

Whatever you do, strive to be the best at it. Reach for the stars and don’t let anyone try to tell you that you are not enough, or that you don’t belong.
