About the Author

I am Karen Ezell, a native Texan from San Antonio. I graduated from Galveston College in 1979 as a professional; in Respiratory Therapy. I majored in Allied Health with emphasis as a Respiratory Therapy, Assistant and trained at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. In 1985, I graduated from the Respiratory Therapy Program at St. Phillips College in San Antonio, Texas; which led to the recognition from the National Board for Respiratory Care as a Certified Respiratory Therapist. I furthered my education, in 1996, at Wayland Baptist University in San Antonio, earning an AAS in Respiratory Therapy and a BSOE in Occupational Education. In 2002, I obtained a MS in Quality Systems Management from the National Graduate School. Next, I furthered my education by obtaining a Polysomnography Graduate Certificate from Texas State University in 2009. Ultimately, after 38 years of experience as a Respiratory Therapist, I decided to pursue a Doctoral degree in Information Systems & Enterprise Resource Management in 2015, from California Intercontinental University. Most of my drive comes from my two beautiful daughters, Krystal and
Kesha’e, and my grandson, Prince. They have served as the catalyst in my life and career, which helped motivate me on this ride…
