Van Puymbroeck Joins NART Board
In addition to Basile and Van Puymbroeck, other members of the NART Board are Sharon Nichols (President-Elect) and Marcia Carter (Historian).
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.
