About Me:
I have 12 years of experience as a full-time and volunteer firefighter. My career began when I started volunteering for Gallatin FD in 2003. After graduating from the Arkansas Fire Academy, I served four years in Iraq as a civilian firefighter occupying the positions of engineer and fire prevention officer. When I returned home, I worked as a police, fire, and maintenance department dispatcher for the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA). After only eight months in that position, I was chosen to be an Aircraft Rescue Firefighter and EMT at XNA.
I have been volunteering for the Beaver Lake Fire Department for eight years. After six years of service, I was promoted to training officer and Captain. In October of 2014, the Beaver Lake Fire Department Board of Directors started searching for a qualified candidate for the open chief position and I was appointed as the interim-chief. While interim-chief, I made positive changes for both the department and the Beaver Lake community. I believe in always doing what is best for the community, and, because of my willingness to put the community first, in January of 2015, I was chosen to be the full-time Beaver Lake Fire Department Chief.

That'll work, she still ain't happy but maybe a little more comfortable with the idea.
