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. Currently I serve as chair of the Government Affairs committee. I am also a member of the publications and public relations committee and elected as Delegate in 2013 and re-elected in 2018. I have worked in the hospital, education, and home care field.
As a delegate in my first year I was elected to the AARC Bylaws committee. Additionally, I continue to serve on the AARC Government Affairs Committee and served 2 years on the Position Statement Committee. As a House member, I co-chaired the Policy and Guide Committee. In 2018 December, I was elected as Speaker-elect.
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.
