I have been teaching respiratory care at Bergen Community College for over 10 years and various ethics and legal courses at Seton Hall University since 2013. I graduated from Seton Hall University School of Law with a Master’s of Science in Jurisprudence with a concentration in health care law.
Professionally, I am a past-president of the New Jersey Society for Respiratory Care (2009). I have participated for several years on legislative and regulatory initiatives in New Jersey, including updating our scope of practice. I served as a member of the publications and public relations committee, government affairs committee, and Judicial committee. In 2013 I was elected as Delegate and re-elected in 2018.
As a delegate in my second year I was elected to the AARC Bylaws committee. Additionally, I served on the AARC Government Affairs Committee and the Position Statement Committee. As a House member, I co-chaired the Policy and Guide Committee. In 2020, I began my term (2021 to 2022) as Speaker.
I have been involved with numerous community asthma and lung disease programs. These programs have ranged from instructing nurses on the use of nebulizers to instructing parents on the importance of asthma care. I have lectured at various conference on ethics, professionalism, law, and education. Outside respiratory I have been involved with the New York City Marathon.
It sound busy but all fun.
