The murals are a declaration of who CU Denver serves. And they’re a testament to the power of those people once they graduate. This is a story that can’t be told enough.

What’s one piece of advice you have for current students?

Bring your whole self to everything you do. Don’t buy into the idea that to be a leader, you have to leave pieces of yourself behind. When I got divorced, the first people I told were on my team at Comcast. Be honest about who you are, because as a leader, you have to be able to remind yourself who you are when things are difficult. To do that, you first have to be self-aware.

What’s your biggest hope for CU Denver?

CU Denver has a big opportunity to play a role in changing what our workforce looks like. And specifically, who holds power in Colorado. CU Denver produces true leaders who are capable of changing the world and making a profit at the same time. I’m hoping that the university stays true to itself by continuing to meet people where they are and supporting them as whole human beings.
