I grew up in the fire service, with my father being a firefighter since I was 2. I began my career as a Fire Explorer I enlisted in the Air National Guard as a Firefighter at the age of 18, after obtaining my degree, I worked for a private ambulance service. In 2007, I got on the job in Branson and have been assigned to Truck 2 since my probation. CurrentlyI am still serving in the Air National Guard with the 138th FW out of Tulsa,OK. We recently returned from a 4 month deployment to the middle east where I functioned as a crew chief on an ARFF rig.
