Shawna Defriece

Professor and Clinical Coordinator for CVT Program

I graduated with an A.A.S. in Respiratory Care from Chattanooga State Technical Community College in 1999. I worked as a respiratory therapist for 3 years and then made a transition into cardiac electrophysiology. I worked for over 6 years in EP and then relocated to central Florida in 2009. I went to work in EP at Orlando Regional Medical Center in 2009 and received my RCES (EP certification) in 2010. I was then promoted to EP Lab Supervisor. In 2011, I received my Bachelors degree in Cardiopulmonary from East Tennessee State University. I came to Valencia College in the fall of 2013. I love cardiac EP and I am very excited to extend my knowledge and experiences to the CVT students!
