About the Employee Spotlight
The Employee Spotlight is a feature of the Academic Health Center Resource Hub and published every Monday. This is driven by nominations from colleagues. By nominating a colleague, you are letting them know that their contribution to our community is valued. Getting to know more about one another is a great way to feel more connected!

Brian believes that the AHC is a great place to work because he's surrounded by smart, creative, committed people who are also here for the right reasons.
In the late 1980’s, I had the privilege of serving as the chairperson of a small but mighty group of AHC staff who organized the first Turtle Derby. Modeled after a similar event held at Johns Hopkins, the inaugural AHC Turtle Derby, done “Minnesota-style,” was held in the summer of 1987. Turtle Derby exemplifies the magic that’s created when people come together with a unified purpose. Little could we have known that this fun-filled fundraiser would still be going strong 25 years later!
I get to work with so many wonderful people across the AHC, and particularly in the AHC Shared units where I do most of my work. They are all dedicated professionals who care about what they do, and I really consider myself lucky to work with them. They are also, as individuals, just really great people who I enjoy. I think great people are naturally attracted to working at the U.
Rob Super in Pediatrics has to be one of my all time favorite people to work with. I have been on a lot of committees with him and he is a great leader. He has vast knowledge of the University of Minnesota and understands how decisions affect employees. Not only is he really smart, but he is a kind and thoughtful person.
