|I have been at Creighton for just over 14 years with most of the
time spent in the V.P. for Academic Affairs office. My job is
varied and interesting. My primary responsibility is coordinating
all matters relating to budget between the areas reporting to the AVP
office and the Budget Director's Office. I like what I do because
it is ever changing and I work with great people.
I earned a BSBA from Univ. of Nebr. at Omaha and an MBA from Creighton 7 years before coming to work here. Prior to Creighton, I worked for Enron, US Gas Marketing and MidAmerican Long Distance Co. primarily in the area of Budgeting.
|More about me:
I am single and really enjoy my life. I am the oldest of 6 children. There is seven years difference between me and the youngest but only 8 minutes separating me and my twin brother, Dave. We were raised in Holy Cross Parish here in Omaha. I have a good relationship with my family and am grateful I have been able to stay in the same city with most of them. My brother's kids are all in college with just 1 left in high school.
I have a good many single Christian friends, both men and women, and I am never wanting for something to do. I am a season ticket holder to both the men's and women's Creighton basketball games. I like participating in sports, but spend a good amount of my summers cycling and walking.
When I'm sitting still, I like to work on sewing projects or read
or listen to lectures. I also enjoy my garden, which has a few rose
bushes and perennials and lots of snap dragons.
|Writing these reflections:
in this online ministry has been a powerful experience for me. Through
the monthly practice of writing a reflection I have become more engaged with
God’s Word. I use a prayer practice called Lectio Divina which along
with Centering Prayer allows me to sit with the reading and allow it to reach
into my heart. The difference between hearing the passage read once vs. reading
it to yourself over and over, until the message is fully formed and clear
is very engaging. I learned about this prayer while on a retreat sponsored
by Nebraska Contemplative Outreach (NCO) in 1995; today I co-chair a leadership
role for this Chapter.
