Connie Boehm

(she, her, hers)

I have a master’s degree in College Student Personnel Administration from Ball State University and a bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Manchester University.

I am a transplant from The Ohio State University and Columbus, Ohio, after working 20 years there as student wellness director. My spouse Mike and I have two great kids: Kirby is a doctoral student and Graduate Teaching Assistant at University of Kansas in Sport Management, and Karly is a special education teacher at Randolph Elementary here in Lincoln. I love family time, living on Pine Lake, entertaining and our animals.

A focus on well-being is important especially for college students as they strive for balance among the nine dimensions of well-being. By implementing small positive behavior changes in one dimension other dimensions will also improve, enhancing overall well-being. My favorite self-care regimen is a bubble bath followed by as much HGTV as possible!

Kenji Madison

Assistant Director, Big Red Resilience & Well-being and Fraternity and Sorority Life

I am, by nature, a people person and have grown to appreciate the interpersonal interactions that occur daily. I take great pleasure in relationships, both proximal and distal.

I engage in a multitude of activities, as my well-being is of the utmost importance. I am an avid weight lifter, and Judo practitioner, lover of baseball, family, and my dogs. I enjoy good food and 70's era music, and I find great pleasure in enjoying a good meal and great music with the people I love.

I currently hold a Master's degree from UNL in Educational Psychology, specializing in cognition, learning, and development. In addition, I am completing my doctoral studies in the same specialization.

Abbey Ragain

(she, her, hers)
Suicide Prevention Program Coordinator

I recently graduated from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS with a bachelor’s degree in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. At KU, I spent time examining the margins that limit the personal and political well-being of individuals and communities through research and outreach activities. I also spent hours in the dance studio acquiring a minor in dance and performing with The University Dance Company.

I'm passionate about empowering people to live their best lives and providing education that contributes to finding and providing support for the various demands and challenges that are presented in everyday life. I find inspiration in community and a necessity of fostering a culture of caring to destigmatize mental health and contribute to an inclusive, educated, empowered, and safe campus.

I am originally from Billings, Montana where I developed an appreciation for nature, and I love to go back to hike the beautiful mountains under the ‘Big Sky!’ Some of my other favorite activities include vintage shopping for groovy clothes, trying to take care of all of the house plants I possibly can, collecting vinyl records of all my favorite albums, and spending time with family and friends.

(he, him, his)
Collegiate Recovery Community Graduate Assistant

I'm a second year law student working as a graduate assistant for the CRC. I will be joining Connie in coordinating student activities and beginning to create a structured program for students in recovery at UNL.

I have been in recovery for over 4 years and have seen my life drastically improve. I look forward to helping others on similar journeys.

I am from Orange County, CA. I am a former chef who enjoys weightlifting, bicycling, reading, and of course cooking. I'm looking forward to working with students to further reinforce our clean and sober lifestyles while finding meaningful ways to improve ourselves and our community. I hope we can establish a wonderful program that will be successful in changing lives for years to come!
