"I began my career in emergency medicine as a paramedic. This background in prehospital medicine gives me a great appreciation of what an EMS (emergency medical services) system does daily. Training is a fundamental component of a strong EMS system, and I enjoy educating all EMS providers. Mercyhealth has strong EMS leadership and I am committed to fostering growth of our prehospital medical systems."
