Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

ATRA Presidents Tend to be Practitioners

Over the last 22 years, the vast majority of the presidents of ATRA have been practitioners at the time they served. In fact, 16 ATRA presidents have been practitioners while only 6 have been educators. The current ATRA president, Bryan McCormick, is a professor at Indiana University but the 8 presidents directly preceeding McCormick were practitioners.
