Welcome to the world of EMS! I bring to the classroom over 26 years of experience in the Emergency Medical Services arena. I have worked in many areas of EMS, Dispatch for Fire & EMS, EMT for private ambulance service and also a Municipality, Firefighter/EMT and also worked for Methodist Hospital Level 1 Trauma Center and LIFELINE Helicopter. I am active in the Air Medical industry at the National Level, teaching and speaking at National Conferences on health and safety. I also have my Bachelor’s Degree in Health Care Administration.
My goal is that each student will become successful in EMS and enjoy the industry as much as I do. I hope that they learn something new each week of class. I teach at the college level so students will have a real experience with classes at the collegiate level. Each student should be prepared to work hard, work with others, and be determined to be successful in the class. I will work with each student to help them achieve their individual goals for my class.
