Registered Respiratory Therapist

Mobile Infirmary Medical Center

I work as a Level II therapist and relief team leader in our Respiratory Care department. As a respiratory therapist, I am responsible for providing patient care on the floor and intensive care units. I am accustomed to documentation through the Epic Lifecare, RUMBA Mainframe, and Abbott iStat Point of Care systems. In my educational training, I have experienced and feel comfortable immersed in large and small Level I and II hospitals, public clinics, home health care clinics, hospice care facilities, and nursing homes. 

2005 - 2008

Fitness instructor & relief director

Hearin-Chandler YMCA

    I served as a fitness instructor in the weight-room as well as Director on duty during the weekends on an as needed basis. As a fitness instructor, I helped those in the gym with questions concerning exercise movements, programs, and over-all fitness concerns about health and dieting. As Director on Duty, I served as head of all departments in the facility: swimming, aerobics, front-desk, daycare, and weight room. I enjoyed the interaction with the members and guests as well as the fun Christian environment the YMCA is renowned for.

Skills

Skills

Certified Asthma Educator

     In 2013 I had the opportunity to take and successfully pass the NAECB boards to become a Certified Asthma Educator (AE-C). Utilizing the knowledge and skills of an AE-C in the hospital performing patient and family education is very rewarding. This upcoming March 20th and 21st in Mobile, Alabama I will get the opportunity to be an instructor for the Asthma Educator Course presented by the American Lung Association. As time progresses I hope to interact with other professionals from state respiratory boards, AARC, American Lung Association, and Association of Asthma Educators who are all initiating new advancements for asthma education on a local, state, regional, and national level. 

Instructional Designe & Development

      On July 22, 2013 I graduated with my Masters of Instructional Design and Development program at the University of South Alabama. Implementing instructional models, learning strategies, needs assessments, and blended-learning solutions to optimize employee, customer, and shareholder awareness and satisfaction are a vital demand for every company. The IDD profession has evolved into also providing human improvement performance modalities coupled with technological implementations which provide a streamlined approach to reducing operational costs and bolstering support structures. I want to transition Instructional Design and Development principles and concepts such as needs analysis, adult learning theory, job aides, and constructivism into real-world advancements for workforce educational and training opportunities. I am familiar with hypermedia learning tool programs such as Camtasia, Adobe Captivate, Photoshop, Snagit, Articulate, and Powerpoint. For my internship as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of South Alabama I utilized the Sakai Learning Management System as a platform to analyze, design, deliver, implement, and evaluate the Cardiorespiratory Practicum course with a student body of 19 senior students. I consider myself a relative newcomer as a practitioner in the Instructional Design and Development field complemented by six years experience in the allied-health and Cardiorespiratory care setting.  

Interest

     I enjoy playing golf with my retired dad whenever I get the chance. I am a huge Pittsburgh Steelers football fan and love everything football related. I am slowly adjusting to become a University of South Alabama football fan, weaning away from my Auburn roots! I love playing with my dogs Lambert and Sadie Mae and working out and running in a futile attempt to stay physically fit.
