The LLU School of Dentistry acquired the services of Kristi Herrmann, beginning November 2014, to fill the School’s need for a second development officer.
Ms. Herrmann joins Tim Sherwin, MS, in the effort to advance the School’s strategic plan and forward-looking mission by securing major gifts from alumni, grateful patients, and friends of the School. Ms. Herrmann will report to Dean Ronald Dailey, PhD, and Lisa Wright, LLU executive director for philanthropy.
“On behalf of the School of Dentistry, I am excited to have Kristi Herrmann here with her contagious enthusiasm and experience with students, alumni, and many health care professionals,” says Dean Dailey. “Kristi and her husband were already part of the School’s community, and she shares the commitment of potential contributors to our mission of graduating the highest quality, service oriented oral health care professionals.”
A native of Oregon, Ms. Herrmann studied at La Sierra University and the Centre Universitaire et Pedagogique du Saleve, Collonges, France, and graduated from Andrews University in 2000 with a double major Bachelor of Arts degree in International Management and French.
Before joining the School of Dentistry, Ms. Herrmann worked for nearly seven years as a physician recruiter for Loma Linda University Health. She spent the previous four years as director of Student Activities & Leadership at La Sierra University, following two years as assistant director of alumni at La Sierra Academy during which she also taught personal finance.
Ms. Herrmann is a certified medical staff recruiter (CMSR), Fellow in the association of Staff Physician Recruiters (FASPR), and has extensive experience planning and coordinating large events such as resident job fairs, fundraisers, and alumni programs.
No stranger to travel and recruiting, Ms. Herrmann’s father was a teacher and principal at academies in Oregon, Texas, Simi Valley, and Riverside, California; and since 1992, he has directed enrollment for La Sierra University, Andrews University, and (since 2002) Allied Health Professions at Loma Linda University.
Kristi is married to Loma Linda Academy history and economics teacher, Brandon Herrmann. The couple has a 14-month-old son, Micah.
Asked about hobbies, Kristi specifies wedding planner.
