Areas of expertise:
I am still learning all aspects of my profession.
I began my training as a firefighter through a high school education program. I graduated in 2002. I beagn as a volunteer with the Village of Lockland Ohio a suburb of Cincinnati.

I was hired part time by Deerfield Township Fire Rescue in 2002. I am still employed with them.

I was hired by the City of Forest Park Fire Department in 2004 as FF Paramedic. I was promoted to Lieutenant in 2007. I am charged with the supervision of two stations and a crew of 10. We run out of our primary station with a two person Medic crew, two person Engine crew, and a three person ladder crew. We run a three person crew out of our second station. As with many fire departments there are days we are fully staffed and other days we are not.

I was hired in 2008 with the Sycamore Township fire department as a part time firefighter.
