Denine McMurren

How do your colleagues describe you?

Denine is a dedicated and focused team-playing ball of energy who genuinely enjoys making people smile and laugh.

Why do you do what you do?

I really enjoy engaging with people and learning about them and their stories. Sometimes it just takes one person to show kindness, empathy, and active listening to make a bad day great for someone. I thrive when I am able to accomplish this.


Denine believes in making personal connections and building trust with her customers, clients, and team mates. Her 30+ year career at Lane Community College has given her time to build strong work relationships and experience in human resources and operations.

Her years with a catering business, and doll accessories business owner have given her experience in customer service and sales.
