Presently, I am the Executive Director of Kent County EMS , based n Grand Rapids, MI. I'm also an EMS Consultant for the American Heart Association (National Center). I'm also an adjunct faculty member for the University of Maryland—Baltimore County in their Master’s Program for Emergency Health Services. Formerly, I was the President of Integral Performance Solutions (IPS and served as a member of the faculty for NAEMSP's National EMS Medical Director Course & Practicum for over 15 years.
Earlier in my career, I was the National Director for Quality, Education and Research with the Rural/Metro Corporation; Director of Research and Education with the Office of the Medical Director in the Pinellas County, Florida EMS system; and worked in the field with Palm Harbor FD, SAS Ambulance; Polk County EMS, Hillsborough County EMS and as a medic in the Army.
For fun, I like to do remodeling and landscaping. One day, I hope to get good at it. In the meantime, I need help laying brick to build my barbeque cathedral.
