Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, trained in Group Crisis Intervention and Assisting individuals in Crisis. Degree in Business Administration and I have been extensively trained at the school of hard knocks.
About Me:
I am smart, dedicated and love Firefighters. They hold a special place in my heart. I would rather laugh than cry so I am a joker. My son was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and served as the Goodwill Ambassador for MDA 2 years in a row. We built a great friendship with the Firefighters. They served our family, and my son, for years. Now, I have the opportunity to pay it forward to Firefighters that have been injured and/or the families of our fallen heroes. It's difficult at times, but one of the most rewarding experiences ever.

Bereavement Advisor, Wildland Firefighter Foundation

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
The opportunity to join the WFF was presented to me shortly after my son passed away. It was meant to be. I work with families here and I imagine he is working with the fallen on the other side. He loved the Firemen!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love being able to serve those who serve, and risk so much for us, and the opportunities to work to make a difference in their lives.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Wildland Firefighters need "the bucket." I heard that it contains special soap, shampoo along with other supplies to help fight the toxic effects of breathing smoke and the harmful chemicals on their skin.
