Danielle Schryver, BAS, RRT is Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital’s Respiratory Care Supervisor. Danielle is accredited as a Registered Respiratory Therapist through the National Board for Respiratory Care.
Danielle grew up in Oakland, Maine, which is close to Augusta. She received her Bachelor of Applied Science from the University of Maine and her Associate in Applied Science from Kennebec Community College. She loved respiratory therapy from the first day in the classroom.
Danielle and her family recently moved from Maine, where Danielle was the program director for the Respiratory Therapy Program at Kennebec Valley Community College. Her enjoyment of teaching is obvious, and although she’s now in Vermont, she continues to teach online courses. Her courses at Kennebec included an introductory course in respiratory therapy, therapeutic modalities, diagnostics, mechanical ventilation, perinatal and pediatric respiratory care, respiratory pharmacology, critical care and a senior seminar.
Certifications include Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advance Life Support (PALS) and Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). Her professional memberships include the American Association for Respiratory Care and the National Board for Respiratory Care. Danielle is quick to point out that the opportunities in Respiratory Therapy are growing and that the field is a very important component in healthcare.
Asked of her work at NVRH, Danielle stated that “Everyone has been very welcoming here. I appreciate the small hospital, and the fact that people work well together. There’s a great deal of knowledge and experience in this department, and that, combined with the interdepartmental involvement throughout the hospital creates better and more complete healthcare for patients. Additionally, I appreciate the hospital’s volunteers and the commitment to alternative therapies.”
Seleem Choudhury, Chief Nursing Officer is very pleased with Danielle’s appointment. “Her teaching experience and commitment to the field of respiratory therapy is impressive. She has a tremendous commitment to patients and healthcare. I look forward to working with her and the department to create a highly effective program on behalf of our patients.”
Danielle and her husband Larry have two children, Ben (13) and Maddie (10). They are enjoying their new home in Littleton. Danielle loves to read and spend time with her family, including their Golden Retriever, Olive. As a family, they love to visit Disney as often as they can, which is never often enough.
