Our Professional Staff

Tami Peterson, PhD, CHT-Admin

Founder & CEO

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 Oxford Recovery 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 ORC.

In 2007 Peterson 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.
