Red Cloud College

Nick Brunger

My name is Nick Brunger. I’m excited to be a Student Advisor for Red Cloud! I’m a Colorado native. While studying Biochemistry and International Studies at the University of Denver, I also swam on the varsity swim team. I love traveling every opportunity I get…though there haven’t been many in the past few years. At UCSOM I am part of the Global Health track looking forward to completing a project in Guatemala. I am little unsure about what I want to do with myself in the future but Internal Medicine and Psychiatry are at the top of my list.

I am a Colorado native growing up in Arvada and attending the University of Colorado at Boulder for my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and MCDB. After college I worked for a couple of years as a dialysis technician and vascular access manager, falling in love with kidneys and chronic disease management. I attended Tufts in Boston and obtained a MPH before finally being accepted into the 2014 class of the University of Colorado School of Medicine. I am in the LEADS tract and was on the leadership for the medical student chapter of the Colorado Medical Society serving on the Medical Society’s Council of Legislation. I am a huge movie buff; I must see all the blockbusters especially anything in 3D. I love to run on a regular basis which is a good thing because I love to bake on a regular basis too. My household includes my husband of 2 years, 2 cats (which have very funny hats for Halloween and Christmas), and a chinchilla named Princess Buttercup. My husband and I are expecting our first child in September which is exciting but also frightening to think about balancing life with work/school. The biggest source of anxiety and frustration for me in medical school is the unknown and receiving bits and pieces of advice here and there from student affairs and through chance contact we have with the class ahead of us. I hope the college program creates a valuable resource for students for timely advice/answers and an opportunity to interact with other classes. I am looking forward to meeting everyone! I hope this program is a fun and useful resource.

Hi all!  I’m Angi and I will be one of the MS4 advisors for Red Cloud this coming year.  I thought I would give a little bit of background about me.  I’m originally from Wyoming and actually worked as a mortgage broker before going to college.  I decided after having my first daughter that I was ready to follow my dreams of becoming a doctor and started college at CSU in Fort Collins.  I got my Bachelor’s in Biology and then my Master’s in Biomedical Sciences from CSU.  I then started med school and the rest is history!  My med school interests have included being involved with Medical Student Council as I am the Co-President of the Class of 2014.  Most of the rest of my time is spent with my 2 beautiful daughters and my husband.  I am planning on specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Hello fellow Red Clouders, my name is Matt, and I look forward to working with all of you! I grew up in CT and went to undergrad at Boston University. After working in a lab in Boston for two years I decided it was time to come out west to CU for med school where the people are friendlier and the weather is more schizophrenic. I probably should have graduated this year with the class of 2013, but I took a year off to do an MBA and con my way onto some publications, so I will be starting my fourth year in June. I will be going into a surgical subspecialty, so if anybody wants to talk business, surgery, or east coast nostalgia, I'm your man.

​I completed medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in 2006 and am currently a general surgery resident at UCD. I am currently taking two years out of the clinical realm to do basic science research with a metastasis model of lung cancer cells. I'm also obtaining a Masters in Clinical Science during this time. I enjoy skiing, hiking and traveling when I can.

I'm currently a second year family medicine resident. I grew up in Olney, MD, and went to Tufts for undergrad, where I majored in Spanish, and University of Virginia for medical school. Within medicine, I’m particularly interested in public health and policy, models for behavior change and chronic disease management, and care for the underserved. Outside of medicine, I enjoy running, hiking, yoga, playing squash, reading, and dominating at word games. After residency, I'm planning on doing a fellowship to get an MPH and ultimately doing a mix of public health and clinical work in an underserved setting. If you have any questions at all please feel free to email me!

Vineel Kankanala I grew up in Hobbs, New Mexico. Eager to leave, I went to Northwestern’s 7 year BA/MD program. Highlights include: studying abroad for a year, not majoring in anything, and not taking the MCATs. Tired of Chicago winters and eager to return to my native Southwest, I chose to come to UC Denver. I am currently applying for GI fellowship, and am applying across the country.  As a resident, I’ve had less time to indulge my hobbies, but I am definitely still able to have fun. My most notable non-medical pursuits:
- Getting swole at the gym
- Losing that swoleness as I sit on the couch and play Halo.
- Reading books that aren’t medical-related but still make me feel like an intellectual.
- Balancing my enjoyment of outdoorsy activities with my love of sitting down indoors.

My name is Julie Knoeckel, and I’m a proud resident advisor and former student advisor for Red Cloud College.  I am a Colorado native and graduated from University of Colorado Medical School and am now an intern in the Internal Medicine residency program at CU. I’m not quite sure what my future career plans include, but a career as an academic hospitalist versus specializing in rheumatology are in the running. I spend my time out of the hospital with my husband, Chris running, hiking and skiing. I’m more than happy to meet up with medical students to talk about a myriad of topics- anything from boards preparation to the transition to internship. Feel free to send me an e-mail!

​I went to Brown University for undergrad then Tufts University School of Medicine. I completed a Pediatrics residency at the University of Colorado and I'm currently here for a fellowship in Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (3rd year fellow). I'm interested in parenteral nutrition, cultural competency/awareness, improving patient care through patient education. Outside of the medical realm, I'm a student advisor for UC-D/CU Boulder undergraduate Hmong Student Association of Colorado. I also enjoy increasing diversity on campus and balancing work/life as a new mother during fellowship. I'm a Denver native and accepted a job in Alaska next year!

Kelsey Watt
I grew up in Minnesota and attended St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN for undergrad where I majored in biology and philosophy.  I went to the University of Minnesota for medical school, and I'm currently a 3rd year pediatric resident going into primary care.  I would love to stay and work in Colorado after residency because of the beautiful outdoors, wonderful weather and so many fun things to do outside like hiking, skiing, biking, running etc!
