My Story

As the owner, instructor, and coordinator of our esteemed training center, I bring over 25 years of invaluable experience in the field of emergency medical services (EMS) to help shape the next generation of lifesavers. With a passion for empowering individuals with life-saving skills, I have dedicated my career to providing top-notch education in EMS and CPR.

My journey began as a nationally registered paramedic, a credential that has solidified my expertise in prehospital care. Serving as the Captain of Cumberland EMS and the Training Officer for the Town of Cumberland, I have had the privilege of leading and mentoring emergency responders, fostering a culture of excellence within our community.

My commitment to enhancing emergency care extends beyond the classroom, as I have worked as an ER Technician at Roger Williams Hospital. This hands-on experience has further honed my skills and deepened my understanding of the critical role medical professionals play in delivering prompt and effective care.

Prior to my current roles, I served as a dedicated paramedic for Burrillville Ambulance, responding to emergencies and providing crucial medical interventions in high-pressure situations. This experience has instilled in me a sense of urgency and a deep understanding of the impact that timely and skilled care can have on patient outcomes.

Education is at the core of my professional philosophy, and I have pursued numerous certifications to ensure that I can provide the highest level of training. As an RI EMS Instructor Coordinator, I possess the necessary qualifications to deliver comprehensive EMS education. Additionally, I am a certified instructor in Prehospital Trauma Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Basic Life Support, and Firefighter Level 1.

My goal is to create a learning environment that empowers individuals to confidently respond to emergencies, equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to make a difference in critical situations. Join me at our training center, where I am dedicated to shaping the next generation of capable and compassionate EMS professionals, one class at a time.
