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.

Did You Know?

Did You Know?

Mental Illness can strike anyone! It knows no age limits, economic status, race, creed or color.

1 in 5 Americans will experience a serious emotional disturbance in their lifetime.

1 in 33 children and 1 in 8 teens experience depression.

Suicide kills more Americans than homicide.
