Nancy Collar is a board-certified, registered respiratory therapist (RRT) with 36 years of experience and additional certifications in asthma education, adult critical care and neonatal/pediatric respiratory care. Throughout her career, she has worked with all types of patients – including medical, surgical, cardiovascular, trauma/emergency, neurology, pediatric, neonatal, ECMO and home healthcare. She also has experience in varying management and research roles and was involved in cutting-edge clinical trials for patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
Nancy's passion is helping others. She strives to make lung disease "simple" for her patients, providing them with the education and tools they need to have the highest quality of life possible – because "If you can't breathe, nothing else matters."
In her spare time, Nancy enjoys spending time with her husband of 27 years, her dog and her two beautiful daughters. She loves the outdoors – especially the beach.
