I have been a part of the EMS System for 13 years now, since I has 16. The first experience I had was as a member of the National Ski Patrol for 12 years, helping injured and lost skiers was a great way to enjoy my favorite outdoor activity. Recently I moved on from the Ski Patrol to allow more time for my family.
Despite moving on from Ski Patrol I am still a member of the EMS family. I work at a camp for disabled youth and adults, one of the most rewarding parts of the job is life guarding on our waterfront, seeing the enjoyment on the face of our campers as they enjoy the water is very rewarding. In addition to life guarding I have been a Medical First Responder for our local community for the last two and a half years. Having the ability to help out my neighbors is a true pleasure. Finally I appreciate the community stands behind what our group does.
