My formal medical training is in the field
of physical therapy. After working full-time in PT for 9+
years and gaining an advanced Masters, I was hired by Rockhurst
University to begin a PT education program with two other PT’s.
While teaching, I completed a PhD in Communication Studies with
an emphasis on communication in health care settings. Following
being a PT professor for 20 years, I moved into administration
and served as the associate dean and interim dean of the
graduate school for 7 years. The majority of the time I
was teaching or in administration there, I continued my practice
of PT part -time. Upon leaving Rockhurst in 2010, I heard
of a local FM residency was looking for an educational
specialist. Been at Research FM Residency since then!
