 Dirk is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Dentistry at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, and lives in Carbondale with his family.  He is the mentor for the Class of 2017 at Glenwood Springs High School. When asked what he likes most about mentoring, Dirk said:

“Giving guidance to my students but not giving them the answers. They need to work through situations on their own in order to grow.  Knowing that what I am doing makes a real difference, and that I am leaving my students in a better place emotionally and educationally than when they started.”
