Staff spotlight: Mindy Kannard
What is your current job title and what responsibilities do you have in your position?
I'm the director of health care executive education. My job is to design and coordinate open enrollment, affiliate and custom health care executive education programming.
What are the unique challenges you face?
Currently we have a strong reputation in Northeast Ohio, but we are working on expanding our brand outside the region.
How long have you worked at Case Western Reserve University?
From where do you originally hail? What brought you to Cleveland/Northeast Ohio?
I'm originally from Rochester, NY. We moved here in 1999 from Columbus, where we lived for 16 years (I worked at OSU).
What is your favorite aspect of Cleveland/Northeast Ohio?
I love Shaker Heights, where we live, and I also love being near a Great Lake. (I grew up on Lake Ontario, and missed the big lakes living in Columbus all those years.)
What is one surprising fact about yourself that you would like to share with the Weatherhead community?
I was trapped in an elevator in the World Trade Center with Clint Eastwood. He's a great guy. Go see his movies.
