Meet Dionne Moore, Collage Center Director & Nurse Manager at the Kearney Office
This week we want to introduce you to Dionne Moore, our Center Director & Nurse Manager for the Kearney office. She is a wonderful lady and we can’t wait until all of our Kearney clients get to meet her!
Dionne, we’re so glad you are part of the Collage team, what do you love most about your job?
I love ALL of it…honestly I can’t identify just one aspect that is my favorite.
What attracted you to Collage and your role here?
After attending a fundraising banquet, I left knowing that I had to be involved someway, somehow. I didn’t know what it would look like, but I knew Collage was something I almost felt compelled to be a part of. Over a long period of time and a variety of circumstances, I was simply drawn here. Also, I have several friends who are very actively involved and so I learned a lot about Collage from them.
Tell us a bit about your education and professional background.
I have my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Winona State University, Winona, Minnesota and my background has been Dialysis and Peri-Operative Nursing in an acute setting.
What hobbies do you have outside of work?
I once thought I could never do it, but now I’ve completed two marathons and have the strange desire to run another some day. I love trying new recipes, especially ones with lots of chocolate. Yum!
WOW! Two Marathons that’s impressive. Tell us about what you love most about living in central Nebraska and/or being involved in the community of Kearney?
No doubt that would be the people. Kearney is truly a special place and Nebraska really is the Good Life!
What are you the most hopeless at doing?
Most things related to technology! But I am getting better. 🙂
Do you have a most embarrassing moment you would like to share?
I was in a little accident shortly after receiving my drivers license…turned out I hit my Driver’s Ed teacher’s car!
What were the last 2 books you read?
Born to Run (enjoyed this for the running and historical aspects of it only). I really loved the book Unbroken by Laura Hillebrand, a World War II story of survival, resilience and redemption.
If you could eat one food for the rest of your life and not get sick of it, what would it be?
Toast with butter and creamy Jif peanut butter.
That sounds yummy! One more question…Do you have a favorite quote or life verse to share?
“Do not pray for an easy life…pray to be a stronger woman. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks! Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle. Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God.” -Phillip Brooks
Thanks Dionne. We have loved learning more about you and we just know that our clients in Kearney are going to love you as well.
