After receiving a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Psychology, with a minor in health promotion from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater, John has dedicated his entire career to helping children with autism and other chronic health conditions. After college, additional education and training that he has received includes, Behavior Therapy Training at the Holland Center, Emergency Medical Technician Training through Allied Medical Training, Hyperbaric Operation Training through Wisconsin Integrative Hyperbaric Center, CPR/AED/First Aid Instructor Training and ongoing First Responder Training through the Red Cross, and Instructor training through Professional Crisis Management Association.
Quickly approaching his ten-year mark of employment at Holland Center, John has held a variety of different roles. In July of 2007, his career here began as a Behavior Therapist. His acquired skills extended beyond the center’s hours of operation as he worked regularly as a personal care assistant to many of the children at home, helping with maintenance projects, and assisting with intense physical behavioral occurrences. In addition, he helped put together and manage the Holland Recreation program. After approximately four years providing full time behavior therapy, his role changed when he underwent EMT training and became a Hyperbaric Chamber Technician in the Holland Biomedical Clinic.
Over the past 6 years, he has been supervising and operating the two-steel sided hyperbaric oxygen therapy chambers we have on-site, running the mild-portable hyperbaric rental program, and selling mild portable hyperbaric chambers. Within this six-year time span he has also continued working as a personal care attendant to children with autism, a part time community-based behavior therapist, and became a member of a local 501c3 non-profit called Children with Autism Deserve Education (C.A.D.E.).
John’s role in the clinic includes supervising the Hyperbaric oxygen therapy chambers, running the rental program, and assisting with clinic operations. His professional interests and goals included offering safe and comfortable hyperbaric oxygen therapy to those in need, helping others re-gain/maintain health, and working to help individuals with autism live life to the fullest.
