The 2019-20 THOA Board

Welcome to the Texas Health Occupations Association

My name is Traci Ricketson, and I am honored to serve as THOA President for 2019-2020. 

Consider this little known fact: most, if not all, Health Science teachers came from the healthcare industry. In the process, they are exchanging a financially and emotionally rewarding career for a mostly emotionally rewarding one.

Our state has many amazing clinicians who are becoming outstanding Health Science teachers, but the leap from serving patients and their families to serving students and their families is not an easy one! 

These teachers need scaffolding as they transition and support as they share the love of medicine and spark the flames of future health professionals.

I am honored to be a part of an organization leading the charge to educate and support teachers in this capacity.

Thank you for allowing me to touch so many lives!
