Years of public service:
Agency structure:
Combination fire department
Professional Qualifications:
I earned an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Fire Science Technology in 2009.
Areas of expertise:
I don't consider myself an "expert" in any particular area of firefighting. I am simply a firefighter who enjoys continually learning about and honing my craft, while passing what I've learned on to the younger firefighters who follow me.
I am a 17-year career member of the Inver Grove Heights (MN) Fire Department, currently holding the rank of Lieutenant.

I am also formerly a 4-year paid part-time member of the Maplewood (MN) Fire Department, where I worked as a Firefighter/EMT.

I firmly believe that there is always something that I can learn in every incident, on every call, and in every training, whether I lead or participate. I am constantly striving to better myself and those around me by remaining open-minded, hungry for knowledge, and mindful of the traditions and tragedies that have brought us as a Fire Service to where we are today. I take a tremendous amount of pride in my work, and in my two fire departments and am at the same time both humbled and honored by the extraordinary Brothers and Sisters that I have the privilege of serving beside every day.
