As a registered nurse for the last 28 years, my primary clinical expertise has been working in the pre-hospital environment as a flight nurse and a paramedic, as well as continuing to work in a variety of clinical areas which include the emergency department, pediatrics and endoscopy. My extensive clinical background has also given me the opportunity to work as a legal nurse consultant with one of the largest law firms in Arizona. As an EMS educator and program director of paramedic training programs for the last 20 years and most recently as the National Clinical Educator for one of the largest air medical transport companies, I truly enjoy teaching in a simple manner as to assure that students do have a strong basic understanding in making critical care decisions and that they will be providing the highest quality of patient care beginning from the least to the most invasive management of care for the patients they are transporting. My goal as a professional and as an EMS educator has always been and will continue to encourage students to have the desire to learn and grow in their profession, as well as contribute to EMS in a way that inspires positive change.
