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.

Book Now and Save $$$$

I just received a reminder from ATRA on the 2008 ATRA Annual Conference coming up September 29th - October 2nd at the Peppermill Hotel Casino in Reno. The theme of the conference is "Leading the Way."

Those that register and book their rooms by August 7, 2008, will get the best prices. So now is the time to act in order to save money.

There are many interesting sessions scheduled during the ATRA Annual Conference. Some of my former students will give presentations, including Judi Voelkl, Jodi Deerfield, Lou Powell and Vicki Scott.

The Educators Meeting will be held on September 30th. Here is hoping that the educators use their time together to discuss concrete steps in setting new minimum standards for RT curricula. If this is not done it will be an opportunity lost.
