I am the Director of Clinical Education and an Instructor of Respiratory Therapy at the University of Southern Indiana.  I am a registered respiratory therapist with 18 years’ experience in the field of respiratory therapy including adult and pediatric critical care, pulmonary diagnostic procedures, and emergency airway management. This includes clinical preceptor experience as well. I teach Basic Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support  through the American Heart Association.   I am certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support.  

The area of health professions is constantly changing and evolving. Because of this, my philosophy of teaching revolves around staying well-informed about the ever changing health field and helping students learn the skills they need to become excellent health care professionals including interprofessional collaboration with other health professionals.  I am dedicated to enthusiastic and dynamic teaching as a means of providing a creative environment to teaching future health care professionals.
