Educator/Public Relations
Hi! My name is Pam Schmidt. I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) of 25+ years. I have completed my education at Northeast Iowa Community College and trained at several hospitals. My background is in hospital care, Home Medical Equipment, billing insurances, and nursing home care.
I deal with all aspects related to the customer's breathing or sleeping issues. I work with all kinds of Respiratory equipment such as: Ventilators, Cpap, Bipap, Nebulizers, MyAirvo, Oximetery, Oxygen and more. I have been helping during this Covid pandemic in various ways. Whether taking a flight to bring someone back or just helping them get back home to their loved ones.
I am very thankful for being an RRT because it has given me the opportunity to work with struggling customers and their families through multiple life-threatening challenges. I enjoy helping my customer obtain the best therapy possible along with giving them the education needed to succeed.
Our Team here at RespShop is excellent and extremely excited to help you. When I am not at work, I love coaching my 3 kids in soccer, basketball, softball, baseball and even wrestling. I love family and friends and always appreciate spending time with them.

Hi! My name is Ashley. I am a Certified Polysomnographic Technologist. I completed my education and training with the Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine.I have been a part of the sleep medicine field since 2014. After seeing my dad diagnosed with sleep apnea and the negative affects it had on his cardiac health, we were adamant to find a solution. Once on CPAP therapy, he was off many of his prescribed medications and had more energy to do his day-to-day activities. Since then, I have had the opportunity to help many patients and close friends and family adapt to their CPAP therapy and the reward in the end is hearing their success story. From coming off medications, stopping snoring, losing weight, to being able to stay awake behind the wheel, sleep apnea has proven it can be the source to many health issues and the CPAP can be a definite life saver.
Outside of work you can catch me playing tennis, travelling, reading, and watching Netflix.

Hi! My name is Patty. I am a Certified Polysomnographic Technician, who is super proud to be a part of the team.
I have seen people's lives change, dramatically, once they become optimally treated for sleep apnea. It is rewarding to hear people speak of having a better quality of life, increased energy, and overall happiness. Knowing I am supporting people in improving their health is the best feeling. And with the technology used in the new machines and masks, it is extremely easy to help everyone find exactly what they need to be compliant in their therapy.
Outside of work, I am sure to spend time with my family and friends, going for bike rides and enjoying dinners together.

Hello! My name is Anne. I am a Registered Polysomnographic Technologist as well as a Registered Sleep Therapist. I did my formal education and training at Thompson Rivers University in British Columbia and am currently working on my masters degree in sleep medicine.
I have been working in the sleep field since 2015 and love the positive impact that I can make on patient's lives. I personally have sleep apnea and have used most of the equipment myself and can offer a firsthand perspective as well as the perspectives I have gotten from all my patients over the years. I cannot wait to help you. Outside of work, I spend most of my days reading, crocheting, swing dancing, and playing dungeons and dragons with my daughter.

Hi! My name is Lily and I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist. I enjoy working in Sleep and Home Oxygen because of the change I can make in people's lives. Even something as simple as finding a more comfortable CPAP mask can really improve someone's quality of life. It's really rewarding to hear people tell me, after their first night on CPAP that they've never slept so deeply! It can be a challenge to adjust to sleeping with a CPAP machine but your body will thank you. It may just be that you haven't found the best mask for you! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions - I'm happy to help. Outside of work, I enjoy baking, and hiking the trails in my area.
