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 Deputy Director for the Matanuska-Susitna ("Mat-Su") Borough Department of Emergency Services in Alaska.
I am a regular contributor to EMS World magazine and a member of the Editorial Advisory Board.
