We all choose our careers for different reasons. A natural talent, a unique interest, or a passion we can’t deny. Joe, a clinical respiratory therapist at Renown Health, came to his calling in a very personal way -– choosing to enter the field after his son passed away from respiratory issues.
He started his career here as a respiratory aide while he was still in school. “I had the chance to work in multiple departments,” Joe tells us. “After school, I went through the Respiratory Apprentice Program which helped me grow my career at Renown.” Today, he is a clinical respiratory therapist at Renown Children’s Hospital, where he passionately helps other kids and families fight the good fight.
Outside of work Joe enjoys an active lifestyle. “I live in north Reno on 50 acres and enjoy working on my property,” he says. “I also like to hunt, fish and camp. In addition, I volunteer for Nevada Bighorns Unlimited and have been a member of the board there.”
