Advice to Students
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do.
Research Interests and Professional Projects
I wasn't sure what I wanted to do in healthcare. I was fortunate to find a profession that I've enjoyed for over 30 years. I've done everything in EMS you can probably do, with the exception of dispatch. I've truly enjoyed every minute of it!
My goal is to prepare my students for a great future as EMT's or Paramedics. I want them to have the same great work experience I've had.
You don't have to be a great student to have a great career. Even if you weren't a great student in the past (and I wasn't), you can't let your history interfere with your destiny. You can change your future! The choice is yours!
