As a respiratory therapist, and the newest State Captain from Ohio, I hope to accomplish educating the public and offering support for those dealing with pulmonary diseases.
As a COPD advocate, I have spoken to my family and friends about COPD, I have participated in health fairs or community events to promote COPD awareness, and I have signed up for COPD360Social.
As a State Captain, I am interested in connecting others in the COPD community to the resources available so they can live healthier, fuller lives, raising awareness by participating in health fairs and community events, and hosting and participating in fundraisers to support my community. I would also like to participate in research opportunities to help find a cure.
My proudest COPD moment has been recognizing that I can help make a change in how this disease affects patients and people I love by offering education and support to them.
My inspiration to share is, “Let your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile”- Unknown
More about me, “My passion is patient education. I think as RTs we have a responsibility to teach our patients how to better manage their disease”
