Employee Spotlight – Christian Otteman

November 8, 2018

What’s your name, what do you do at Neurocore, and how long have you worked here?

My name is Christian Otteman and I’m a Program Specialist at the Grandville center. I’ve been working here ever since I graduated from Hope College in April 2017!

Tell us a bit about your background. Where did you go to school? What did you study?

I went to high school at Zeeland East and got my bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience at Hope College, so I’ve been in West Michigan pretty much my whole life. While I was at Hope, I had a few opportunities to do research in chemistry and neuroscience that led me to develop a passion for this science.

Tell us about a particularly rewarding experience you had at Neurocore.

Some of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had while working at Neurocore have come from working during the clinical trial for Memory Boot Camp. Getting to know these clients on a more personal level and having chances to get to hear their stories and struggles and eventually see the progress they made throughout the program made this an extremely valuable experience.

Which game show would you be awesome at and why?

Probably Family Feud—I’ve seen so many episodes that I’ve probably seen every question that they could ask at this point!
