Public Safety

I started out in public safety in 1996 after becoming an Emergency Medical Technician. I spent the better part of 10 years working through my undergraduate degree and remaining involved part-time until 2015.
I remain involved as a member on the Paramedic Advisory Board at the George Moerkirk Emergency Medicine Institute at Lehigh Valley Health Network where I am able to maintain a presence in the prehospital realm with experience as a provider and a policymaker. My role on the advisory board is to assist with refinement of the curriculum and improve the caliber of first responders who are on the front lines helping those in need.
I also have considerable experience in volunteering on the Senate Resolution 6 commission to improve public safety in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania from a policy perspective. I spent countless hours in roundtables with state officials and public safety professionals who represented various types of services. The meetings culminated into the a study released that is found here and includes all findings and recommendations made by the commission.
I had the privilege of representing the National League of Cities as their liaison to the National Fire Academy where a commission was formed to rewrite the Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment and Retention Manual. It was a worthy cause where I was able to help craft policy to assist with a growing crisis of lacking volunteers in underserved municipalities that are unable to afford career fire protection,
