About Me

I am the Director of Clinical Education in the Respiratory Care Program at Hawkeye Community College, starting in January, 2008. My responsibilities include arranging and maintaining relationships with clinical sites, clinic scheduling, and instruction of respiratory classes listed below. I advise the Respiratory Therapy Club for all current and future students interested in respiratory care. I enjoy enthusiastic and eager students ready to enter the respiratory care profession. In 2012 I was honored to become a Hawkeye Foundation board member.

Outside of Hawkeye Community College, I am involved in the Iowa Society for Respiratory Care organization to support and advance the respiratory care profession in Iowa. Prior to my career at Hawkeye Community College, I worked in the Des Moines area at facilities such as On With Life, Inc, Mercy Medical Center, Mary Greeley Medical Center, and the VA. I was also an adjunct instructor at Des Moines Area Community College in the Respiratory Care Program.
