Hi! I am Jessica Hudnall and I am employed at Angelina College in Lufkin, TX as the Respiratory Care Director of Clinical Education, as well as a Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) at Woodland Heights Medical Center as needed. I graduated high school from Huntington High School in 2001. Then went to undergraduate school at Stephen F. Austin State University and majored in Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Development with a Minor in General Business. At the time, I thought I wanted to be an Ag Teacher but mid way I changed my mind and my minor went from Education to Business. I graduated from SFASU in 2005. After graduation, the economy was down and there were few jobs in our town. I struggled with finding employment.
I met my husband and his four year old daughter and six year old son in 2009, we got married in 2010 and after being married for a year I decided to go back to school for Respiratory Therapy at Angelina College. In the last two months of respiratory school we found out I was pregnant with my first child a crazy, fun loving, wild little boy. We have two boys and a girl together ranging from 15 to the age of 4. There is never a dull moment. Upon graduation with my AAS in Respiratory Therapy in 2013, I took my national boards and became a Registered Respiratory Therapist. After graduation, a job was always easy to find in our town in health care.
I had only been a RRT for a short time before being approached to teach respiratory care at the college in 2016. With many thoughts and consideration I decided to take the position. It has been the best decision thus far in my career. I enjoy helping students find their passion and become successful. I am now seeking my Masters in Education to help grow as a leader in digital tech as well as an instructor of education.
I am excited for my new adventure at Lamar University in MEd in Digital Learning and Leading.
