I earned a bachelor’s degree in physical therapy from the University of Colorado and a master’s degree in pediatric physical therapy from Boston University. I used my training to work with children with disabilities for many years. A perpetual student, I later completed an additional 15 credit hours in education at the doctoral level, and earned a master’s degree in biology from the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Eventually, I moved from physical therapy to education. I taught math and science to middle and high school students for several years at a private school and worked as a private tutor. I have lectured on health-related topics to all age groups, from school-age children to adults, and currently teach human anatomy and physiology at a local community college. I received my college’s Adjunct Faculty Excellence Award for 2010/2011, and I’m the author of the eBook, “College Success Now!”.
I also write and teach online courses for a company called ed2go, a division of Cengage Learning. I am the author and instructor of six six-week courses: Human Anatomy and Physiology I, Human Anatomy and Physiology II, Introduction to Chemistry, Teaching Science: Grades 4 to 6, Become a Physical Therapy Aide, and Medical Terminology II: A Focus on Human Disease. I also am the instructor of a six month online career development course for physical therapy aides.
