I began in respiratory care as an on-the-job trainee (OJT) in an 80 bed hospital in Door County, Wisconsin. I graduated from the Triton College Respiratory Care Program in 1977, and became a registered respiratory therapist (RRT) in 1978. I held the position of Director of Education for the Respiratory Care department at two major hospitals in the Chicago area. I began teaching at Triton in the Respiratory Care program in 1980. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in 1984 from Northeastern Illinois University with a major in Adult Education and a minor in Biology. I received my master's degree in education from the University of Illinois in Urbana, Il. in 1992. I am currently pursuing a doctorate in educational psychology. I have also passed the certification for pulmonary function technologists (CPFT) and the Perinatal/Pediatric specialty exam offered by the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC).
