Biographical Sketch

My name is Robert W. Williamson and I have been teaching at ULM since 1988.  

I am currently certified through the National Safety Council as well as the American Heart Association.  I am also a licensed Athletic Trainer in the State of Louisiana and have been since 1987.  I served as one of the assistant athletic trainers here at ULM from 1983 until my leaving that post in the summer of 2008. 

I wanted to pass along some additional information.  October 27, 2019, my wife, Emily, passed away due to complications due to her battle with Inflammatory Breast Cancer.  

Emily was the director of the ULM Child Development Center here on the ULM Campus.  She had the only 5 Star rated child care center north of Alexandria, LA.  

Since July 2011, Emily and I have had 18 chemo therapy treatments, two surgeries (a mastectomy and a 14 hour surgery at MD Anderson last August), 30 radiation treatments at MD Anderson, in addition to numerous trips to local doctors and trips to Houston.  We spent time at University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi in February due to her endocartis.  

February of 2019, Emily's health began to decline following a trip to Orlando.  She then developed endocarditis and then in August of 2019, it was determined that her inflammatory breast cancer had moved to her lungs.  Eventually, Em's liver and kidneys began to fail.
