Live in a log home out in suburban-to-rural Rhode Island. I enjoy hiking, bike riding, horseback riding, reading, music and modelmaking. Married my rescue partner and best friend for the last 10 years - she keeps me smiling when the day has gone to the dogs. Drive a pickup truck. I kick around in the house w/2 cats and in the yard w/3 horses.
Cardiology nurse, V.A. Hospital
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Came from a family in the fire department, always loved what the work was about. Got into it at 14 and never looked back. Helping people in trouble has always been what I believed my life's work was supposed to be, and I'm blessed to be doing it.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The work! That's what it's all about.
