Began volunteering several years ago and received my basic training through the state. I applied to 2 counties and was offered a position shortly after applying. I received a large portion of my training in the last few years. I have sought out advanced training opportunities and have attended many large conferences to expand my knowledge. I have been published several times in the Roundtable on preplanning and commercial prevention subjects. I developed a very successful preplanning program 3 years ago that has seen great advantages. I have also written several successful grants and continue to look for training and instructor oppurtunities.
