  • Cali Biaggi

    "When Cali taught my LAR 101 class for our Library Week, she showed her tremendous skills as a teacher and her commitment to helping students research. She kept a group of 19 first-year students engaged in research beyond what I have seen before! Thank you for what you do, Cali!" - Joshua Pope

  • AJ Chauradia

    "AJ is a new faculty in the College of Business at Doane who has stepped in and tackled so much already. He is working on the faculty website content (getting to know all of us pretty well I might add), adding new exciting content to courses at Doane and supporting the MBA and undergraduate programs with energy and excitement. Welcome to Doane AJ and thank you for the excitement and energy you have brought this summer to supporting the COB." - Deb Sepich

  • Arianne Stuhr

    "Arianne has been so helpful and understanding as I become more acclimated to campus. She is always available to assist me in making a room reservation, or guide me on which brand of lighter fluid to buy for a fire pit on campus :). She truly goes above and beyond and without her, the CAPE Project wouldn't have been able to have such a strong start to the year." - Shyla Kallhoff

  • Anita Harkins

    "Anita always goes the extra mile.  Currently she took up training all departments on new software (SAL) which is not her area of responsibility, but that is just who Anita is.  She always supports her team, and is willing to assist in any way possible." - Diane Kaye

  • Amanda Irions

    "Amanda has been nothing but kind and supportive since I started at Doane last year. She is as generous and thoughtful with fellow faculty as she is with students. I feel lucky to work in a department with her in it." - Eric Tucker

  • Ted Jedlicka

    "Ted is absolutely fabulous to work with.  Not only is he extremely helpful with IT matters, he is friendly, professional and always has a smile on his face.  It is such a pleasure to get to know him and work with him.  He is very appreciated." - Anita Harkins

  • Heather Klinker

    "Heather is the unsung hero of enrollment and we would not function as a team without her.  She is incredibly knowledgeable and is always willing to lend a helping hand, no matter how busy she is.  I'm so grateful to have her on my team and to be able to work with her." - Alaina Popp

  • Elizabeth Lowe

    "Elizabeth brings so much knowledge and creativity to her film and media classes. The students are lucky to have her, and we're lucky to have such a talented and thoughtful colleague." - Eric Tucker

  • Kelsee Meissner

    "Kelsee Meissner continues to do phenomenal work and makes a tremendous impact on the Doane Community. Most recently, she has been one of the champions for our mental health task force. This task force specifically focuses on how we can improve access to mental health resources on our Lincoln Campus. She composed a report that combines the committee's data, ideas, and recommendations. In addition, she has provided Doane knowledge and insightfulness while on the Director of Enrollment hiring committee. Kelsee Meissner is someone that lives Doane's mission and values on and off the clock. Thank you, Kelsee, for making Doane better." - Emily Yokel

  • Megan Paulson

    "Megan Paulson is the kind of person who sees an issue and steps in to figure it out. She has been so great to work with in the MBA and the MAM to MIL transition. She is stepping in and taking responsibility for a lot of things that are helping us retain students at a higher level and has streamlined some processes to support the scheduling processes for new and returning students.  Megan is witty, and positive and talented and works hard  and sees things before it becomes a problem. Thanks Megan for all you do." - Deb Sepich
