Congratulations to our Program Managers that were accepted into the EMSC Fellows Program!

  • What you are most excited about the Fellows program? I am most excited to work with national leaders and to have an even greater impact on not only the EMSC program but for kiddos everywhere. I love a challenge!
  • Tell us something about you! I’m an adrenaline and adventure junkie. I was a remote site medic for the oil and gas industry and was scheduled to spend a summer working in the Arctic Circle. However, I was hit by a drunk driver while on my motorcycle, so I was in the ICU instead. I missed out on the Arctic, but I bought a new bike that was race-prepped and got to try my hand on the track. My favorite track is the Utah Motorsports Campus – a fun track in the most beautiful country!

  • What you are most excited about the Fellows program? I applied to be a fellow to connect with other professionals and learn new strategies to improve pediatric emergency care. I am excited not only to collaborate with others but also apply what I learn to the Florida EMSC State Partnership Program.
  • Tell us something about you! I have started to enjoy reading this past year! My goal this year is to read 24 books.

  • What you are most excited about the Fellows program? I applied to the Fellows program to enhance my efforts at the State Partnership level while contributing to the national effort to improve pediatric emergency care. I am most excited to be able to support the improvement of collaborative communications across the pediatric care platform and address patient and caregiver needs, expectations, capabilities, and limitations.
  • Tell us something about you! I am an avid cyclist (two-wheel personal pedal powered) and have participated in many long distance cycling events in the US and Canada over the years, including the National EMS Memorial Bike Rides which honor EMS provider line of duty deaths across the country. These rides take place as five different multi-day events during the warmer months and includes a one-day ride that coincides with the Weekend of Honor and National EMS Memorial events held in the Washington DC area.
