  • Staying Motivated: You and Others

    A few days ago one of my former students sent me a quick message. I always enjoy these messages because usually I hear about an experience they had at their new job.

  • Advice for New Grads

    It's that time of year where the respiratory students are graduating. I remember when I first started at the children's hospital and we barely had any students. Nowadays we have over seven schools that come to visit. It's a great opportunity to have year long interviews and see which one of these students would be a good fit for our respiratory ...
