He took additional training at Purdue University and the University of Denver. Mr. Feiwell holds Bachelor and Masters degrees along with further extensive training in Speech Therapy & Audiology (with a minor in Psychology). While he began his career as a member of a local school system in California, he spent approximately 50 years in Detroit, Michigan, and the surrounding suburbs as a speech and hearing pathologist. He was one of the first to establish and maintain a thriving private practice while also serving on the staff and as a consultant to Detroit area hospitals.

He retired to Bloomington approximately seven years ago. Mr. Feiwell's interests included world travel, especially the world cruises he took. He was also an active supporter of Indiana University's basketball and football programs.
