Professional history

24 years in radio and television broadcasting



Peter Amann and Ivy Heims, both Health Professions; and Terry Wirkus, Information Technology Services; directed "PA Program Interviews for the Class of 2023" on Oct. 9 in online format. A big thanks to them along with former faculty member Amie Baumgartner, PA-C for their exemplary work in coordinating two full days of interviews with 90 candidates and multiple judging panels. Like most things impacted by Covid-19 this year, everyone adapted and it went off without a hitch because of their behind-the-scenes effort. A job well done.
