I was introduced to emergency medicine when I joined the local volunteer fire department. After completing the Emergency Medical Responder program, I began responding to emergency calls to access and stabilize patients until the ambulance could arrive. It was at this time I realized I was hooked on emergency medicine and helping others. I started working with Metro Ambulance and progressed from a Basic Emergency Medical Technician to a Paramedic and eventually Shift Supervisor. While working as a Paramedic I started teaching at Meridian Community College as an Instructor for their Emergency Medical Technician program. I also started training at the local volunteer fire departments helping train their Emergency Medical Responders.After realizing I had gone as far as possible in pre-hospital emergency medicine as a Paramedic I decided to go to medical school. Now I have the opportunity to not only work in the only Level I Trauma Canter in the state as an emergency medicine physician but I also have the opportunity to help train residents on their journey to becoming emergency medicine physicians. In addition, I continue to help train others to work within the pre-hospital environment.
