Debra Gonzalez, BSN, ACHRN, CHT, CWS
Ms. Gonzalez is the Program Director for Bayfront Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center in St. Petersburg, FL. An avid scuba diver, her interest in hyperbaric nursing began early in her career. For the last eighteen years she has served in many positions in the field of hyperbaric medicine which include management, marketing, teaching and clinical roles. She spent 16 years in a hospital-based multiplace emergent center caring for injured divers and critical patients. As educator, her role included speaking at area scuba clubs about prevention of decompression illness. During this tenure she was fortunate to work alongside military trained hyperbaric technicians who taught her both multiplace and monoplace hyperbaric maintenance and repair. In 1999 she obtained her certification in wound care from the American Academy of Wound Management and has lectured extensively about wound care.
In addition to her role as Program Director she also serves as a faculty member of Wound Education Partners and is a nurse surveyor
