Paramedic, writer, mother, educator (order of priority depends on the presence of bloodshed and/or cries of the misbehaved).
After serving over 25 years in the sleepy little city known as Newark, I officially qualify as a veteran paramedic and could be found in and around ambulances, classrooms or helicopters throughout northern New Jersey. In the fall of 2015, I turned in my gold shield and left the East Coast in order to go on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure with my family.
We drove across the continent and headed for the Last Frontier, where I am now the EMS Operations Chief for the Matanuska-Susitna ("Mat-Su") Borough DES in Wasilla, Alaska.
I am a staff writer for EMS World magazine and a member of the Editorial Advisory Board. I have a monthly column called "The Midlife Medic" which you can find in print or via the website.
Please feel free to contact me with questions or inquiries on speaking or writing availability.
