About Me:
I started out as a volunteer for my local department when I was still in High School. After school I took a job in a machine shop until I was 21. I turned 21 in Oct. and went to work for the Camden F.D. in Feb. A little over a year after hiring on there I tested and was hired by El Dorado fire dept. Since then I have gotten my EMT instructor certification and I have become an instructor for the Arkansas Fire Academy. I'm currently in medic school hoping to accomplish that goal and finishing off my degree so I can become a Paramedic instructor also.
