Courtney graduated from West Chester University as a Respiratory Therapist in 2006. She and her best friend Noel started working at Einstein Hospital where she remained for the past 18 years.

She made many friends from coworkers over the years.

Courtney married Drew in 2009 and they happily shared a love for animals, horses, dogs, cats and most recently chickens. She was loved by her family, friends and coworkers for her infectious laugh and generous smile.

The Respiratory community lost a smart, kind, and compassionate therapist. She will be missed by the many who knew and loved her.

The Pennsylvania Society for Respiratory Care updates its look to emphasize its mission to Respiratory Therapists in our Commonwealth: Education, Research, Leadership.

Phoenixville, PA. – March 8, 2024– The Pennsylvania Society for Respiratory Care, Inc. (PSRC), the premier advocate for respiratory therapists and respiratory therapy professionals, unveiled their refreshed logo exemplifying their core values: Education, Research, and Leadership.   

Eileen Censullo, President of the PSRC and leader at the American Heart Association, remarked, “Changing our logo was important to me and the board to freshen the look and emphasize what we focus on as Respiratory Therapists as a board and as practitioners in the state. Respiratory Therapists are the premier leaders in Respiratory education, research, and leadership in the state of PA. We held a contest in the PSRC membership to submit logos and the logo was voted on by the membership. It is crisp and clean. “


Jerin Juby, Vice-President of the PSRC and a faculty member at Thomas Jefferson University, said, “We have been evolving, and it was time for us to refresh our looks. And furthermore, we asked our members to design the logo, which not only highlighted talent but also supported a refresh of our vision and mission amongst our members. We hold utmost pride in representing one of the most amazing professions in healthcare.”
