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.

The Southeast Recreational Therapy Symposium (SRTS), Inc. is excited to offer scholarships for the Southeast Recreational Therapy Symposium to be held April 9-11, 2014 at the Sheraton Convention Center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The theme for this year's symposium is “Evidenced Based Recreational Therapy: An Opportunity to Learn, Grow, Practice. ” In addition to the student scholarships, SRTS is pleased to again offer a scholarship for first-year practitioners.
