Welcome to Health Science Education at GCISD Technology Education and Career Center!
The healthcare industry will continue to be one of the fastest growing fields in the upcoming years. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts between 2014-2024, occupations related to healthcare will add the most new jobs, over 2.3 million. This is an exciting time to introduce learners to the ever changing world of medicine and explore the many career opportunities in this field.
I am a licensed Physical Therapist and received a B.A. in Exercise and Sport Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a B.S. in Physical Therapy from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings throughout my physical therapy career and I am committed to providing a relevant classroom learning experience. I will also be serving as an advisor for Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), which is a professional organization for students planning to pursue a career in the health professions.
I am excited to be part of the Health Science program at GCISD Technology Education and Career Center and I am looking forward to a wonderful school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the GCISD Health Science Program.
