Education/Degree :
A.T. Still University, MHED; University of Puget Sound, BS; Tacoma Community College, RT

Practice Name :
Retired from Lone Star College

Years in practice :
Professor Educator

Major Activity :

Often in my career, I would observe discomfort and dyspnea in patients receiving mechanical ventilation so would work with my students in the laboratory as well as in clinical to titrate the ventilator to achieve patient comfort. I believe as caregivers we should stress compassion and concern for our patients.  I was taught to stay separate from our patients pain and suffering, and from my personal experiences as a patient, I no longer believe that.

Board Certification :
Registered Respiratory Therapist - 1985
