HEALTHCARE TRANSFORMATION SPECIALIST
Rick Dendinger is now working as the HealthCARE Transformation Specialist at Helena College. He was born in Newport Beach, CA and spent his childhood on or near the ocean doing sports, surfing and meticulously grooming his then long, blonde locks. He is a graduate of the University of California Irvine (Music) and Pepperdine University (MBA). After stints in Texas and Norway, Rick has spent most of his adult life in Montana. He has worked as a music instructor, ESL teacher, fiscal officer, project manager, grant writer and human resource director. In his spare time he likes to be outside and do sports: all kinds of cycling, trail running, hiking and an occasional paddle. He also enjoys traveling the globe. When it’s cold, he XC skis, works out in the gym, plays music and reads non-fiction.
