Denise Dodd

Denise Dodd is the Program Administrator in the Department of Population Health at Dell Medical School. She joined in February 2016 where she worked with Dr. William Lawson, former Associate Dean for Health Disparities. She then moved to the Department of Population Health in March 2016. Her work with the Division of Global Health and now with the AMPATH-México consortium is a privilege and a dream opportunity to help bring opportunities for learning about different health care models in international settings. Denise is originally from Northern California – six hours north of San Francisco in the Redwood Forest – and moved to Austin in 2015. She has a BA in Liberal Studies with minors in Business, Communications and Art History from Humboldt State University. She has also had several distinctly different previous careers: first as a professional cook, caterer and event planner, then as a small business start-up consultant and bookkeeper. One of her most memorable and meaningful experiences was a four-week International Business and Intercultural Communication program in Lausanne, Switzerland and Sicily, Italy. Denise’s interests include painting, gardening, perusing country estate sales and time with family.
