Founder & CEO
Our faculty is led by Dr. Tami Peterson, the Founder and CEO of Oxford Certification. Dr. Tami Peterson’s career began in the field of education, focusing on special needs children throughout Michigan and Indiana. A personal crisis was the catalyst for the formation of The Oxford Center. At nine years old, Dr. Peterson’s daughter JeAnnah contracted viral encephalitis. The disease ravaged her brain, leaving her legally blind, unable to walk or talk, plagued with seizures, cognitively impaired, and functioning like an infant. Dr. Peterson’s search for something that could save her daughter led her to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). JeAnnah recovered and is now a happy and healthy young adult who works at TOC. You can read the full story here.
In 2007 Peterson first did her CHT and Safety Director courses at ATMO in San Antonio, Texas. She has a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Spring Arbor University; a Master of Arts in Special Education from Michigan State University; a Master of Arts in Education Leadership from Indiana University, Fort Wayne; and her Doctor of Philosophy Degree from Wayne State University.

Jeff Mosteller received a degree in Underwater Technology in September of 1982. Since then, he has worked in every aspect of hyperbaric medicine, starting at UCSD Medical Center where he rose to become Program Director by age 28. Jeff took the very first CHT exam offered in 1991 by the National Board of Diving and Hyperbaric Medical Technologists, passing with distinction and becoming just the 33rd CHT ever.
Over his 36-year career, Jeff has operated and managed hyperbaric and wound care centers on every level including Level 1 Trauma Units, such as UCSD and Detroit Receiving Hospital with Complex Multiplace Chambers and intensive care capabilities, to small hospital monoplace centers, and is familiar with every type and manufacturer of hyperbaric chambers. He has published 16 technical papers on hyperbaric operations and safety. Finally, in just over 36 years, he has performed or supervised tens of thousands of hyperbaric procedures without a single patient injury more than an ear squeeze, and has performed hundreds of treatments for decompression sickness.
