Dr. Amy Bardin-Spencer Ed.D, MSc, RRT, VA-BC, FAARC
I am a member of a dynamic team stretching the boundaries of skill and scope of practice in the name of patient care and positive outcomes. As a proud respiratory therapist and vascular access specialist I really have the best of both worlds. I am able to maintain a passion in my chosen field of respiratory care and advance a scope to increase collaboration among an entire healthcare team to deliver better practice with measurable related outcomes. In the last few years, I have focused on advancing my education, having completed my BS and MS I am now pursuing my PhD. This journey has been amazing and has opened my mind to so many great things. Sticking to my personal moto of “Find your Purpose,” I have truly found mine as both a bedside clinician and a teacher/mentor.
My philosophy regarding teaching and mentoring others encompasses the ability to contribute to someone else’s success, through motivation, inspiration and leading by example. Working side by side with individuals or an entire team and finding common practices that exemplify our work and patient outcomes. As a teacher/mentor/leader I believe motivation is important, maintaining a vision and expectation is essential for others success. Inspiring each individual to their maximum potential by seeking qualities within them. I am a leader, leading individuals on my team or in life through a journey of personal experience and contribution, reward, and challenge.
