Student Health Center
Peg has been on the UNK staff since 1986. A graduate of the University of Nebraska Medical Center with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, also has earned certification in College Health Nursing.
Peg genuinely cares about all students, but she has a special compassion for international students on her own time as well as on the job. She works on Sunday afternoons as a tutor and invites students to her home for meals. She is always on the lookout for ways to help. She once acquired a bicycle from a friend, put on new tires, and gave it to an international student who needed transportation. When that student left, she put on another new set of tires and gave it to another international student.
Peg’s professionalism and dedication to her job and her community are exemplary, and she encourages others to get involved by volunteering in the community.
