As a fire service member serving in a multitude of capacities ranging from the volunteer fire house to state boards, I have been blessed to serve in the best profession in the world since 1998. I find my passion to be in the areas of fire prevention. Watching a neighbor’s home burn across the street at the age of 8 and participating in a 4-H fire safety bowl at a young age, I was intrigued by the work done by firefighters. Intending to be a teacher, God had different plans for me. I am glad he knows what’s best for me.

My goal is to leave this profession better than when I came into it.  I still get excited seeing the big red trucks roll emergency traffic down the road. I pray I never lose that passion. What inspires me is the fact that I know I will never be out of work. So many in the fire prevention arena have a desire to see zero fire losses, injuries, and fatalities, I realize that is an unrealistic statement. So, I come to work and leave hoping I made a difference each day. Henry Ford said it best: "Obstacles are those frightful things that you see when you take your eyes off your goal."
