Dina Dusek joined NEOMED in January as administrative assistant in the Office of Student Services. The Pulse recently invited her to let the NEOMED community learn more about her.

What is your role at NEOMED?

I am the frontline support and student services lead in the Office of Student Services. I provide support for online and in-person orientation, Commencement and White Coat ceremonies, and the functions of credentialing, student organizations and activities, conduct, global engagement and the Senior Executive Director.

Tell me about your family. Any pets?

I am married with two children. We have two dogs and two cats!

What’s your idea of a perfect day?

Going on a vacation with my family to relax and really enjoy our time together.

If you could live a day as any animal, what would you choose and why?

I would be a family dog because I would get treats all day long and sleep in sun puddles. And I wouldn’t have to work so hard for my snacks.

If you could eat only one type of food for a year, what would you choose?

Cereal, especially Life.

What has been your favorite Halloween costume?

My two favorite costumes have been Sully from Monsters Inc. and a wine bottle.

What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?

I would buy a private tropical island.

If you could be any Disney character, who would you be?

Minnie Mouse.

If you could leave for vacation tomorrow, where are you going?


What makes you feel old?

I feel old when I reference old tv shows, like Wild Wild West, Mr. Belvedere or Growing Pains. The younger generation have no idea what I’m talking about.
