I have a strong interest in emergency medicine both in the prehospital and hospital setting. My focus over the last 20 years has centered on the acute phases of injury / illness. In the past, I have been certified in: Prehospital Pediatric Provider Course (PPPC) both as a provider and instructor; CPR instructor; ACLS instructor; EMS instructor / coordinator; and played an instrumental role in the initial Level IV Trauma Center designation at Comanche Hospital where I served as the Trauma Coordinator.
I have coordinated and taught 10 EMT-Basic courses, one EMT-I course, and one EMT-P course. I have served as EMS Director at Comanche EMS and as a field supervisor at Alert Care EMS in Cleburne, Texas, and Southwest EMS in Clifton, Texas. I also held the position of Vice President of Operations for North Texas Medical Transport (NTMT) in Erath County, Texas. As a supervisor and/or director, I ensured that the EMS staff was current in their state required certifications and that CEU's were made available as required by their certification level.
My goal for the near future includes pursuing certification as a CEN.
