Personal Rehabilitation Approach:
“I love being a respiratory therapist. I work with patients of all ages. I have found that few things are as rewarding as helping someone breathe better. It’s very gratifying to be part of a team that works so well together to help people, and I’ve been blessed with amazing teams at both workplaces.”
