Job Description: Build deep relationships with benefactors, destigmatize mental health, educate and provide support to the Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Depression Center 

Why CU? I started out as a patient being treated on the CU Anschutz Campus. Following my recovery, I knew I wanted to be a part of the life-changing work that takes place every day. 

I am most excited about the opportunity to be involved in destigmatizing mental health.  

I love being around passionate individuals who are driven to make a difference in the world.
