I am currently a volunteer firefighter/paramedic with North Chittenango FD and work professionally as a Fire Service and EMS Instructor. I have worked professionally as a senior paramedic for Eastern Paramedics in Syracuse, NY and Cooperstown Medical Transport in Cooperstown, NY. I have been involved in fire and EMS training for the past 25 years and graduated Syracuse University with a Master's in Education in 2007. I am a New york State certified teacher in Chemistry and Biology and have been an adjunct professor of telecommunications at SUNY Institute of Technology in Utica, NY.
I am a life long learner and constantly searching for knowledge, skills, and training in fire and emergency medical services. Training for succession and mentoring are the prime goals at this stage of my teaching career helping the next generation of fire fighters and emergency medical services personnel become knowledgeable competent professionals.
