Professional Summary
I graduated from Ione High School in 2003 of Oregon. It is a small farming community in Northeast Oregon. I went on to college in Walla Walla WA where I obtained a AAAS in Fire/Science graduating in 2006. While in Walla Walla, I learned about fire fighting and also obtained my EMT-Basic through College Place Fire Dept as a resident Firefighter/EMT. I moved on to learn how to drive and pump fire apparatus at CPFD as well. From there I moved to Vancouver WA and obtained my Paramedic certification. During that time, I spent time in Brownsville TX where I did my internship as a Paramedic. After graduating from paramedic school, I got a job with Advanced Life Systems in Yakima WA where I obtained experience as a paramedic. I currently reside in El Paso Tx working as a Firefighter/Paramedic for the City of El Paso for the last 3 years. I went to their fire academy for 16 weeks to obtain higher level of training in firefighting before going out on the line and working 24 hour shifts. I learned much more down here in El Paso over the past 3 years.
