Tell us in a few sentences what your experience is in the Fire Service or LMS industry?

I have served more than 16 years in public safety, including 8 years at Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services (GA) and 8 years at Alpharetta Fire Rescue (GA), where I am currently a Fire Apparatus Engineer and Medical Field Training Officer, and hold various other instructor-level certifications. 

What do you do for the Fire Academy? 

As a Sales Account Executive and a career firefighter what I bring to The Fire Academy is being able to view this program from two different angles. This helps me with customer concerns and hurdles because I have gone through some of them as a firefighter who assists with training.

I fully understand that getting buy-in from your department when it comes to training is difficult! What sets us apart from the rest are our short, quick Training Minute videos and our FDIC International and JEMS Con short videos. There is always new information or tricks of the trade to be learned.

What do you enjoy doing in your personal time? 

I enjoy hunting and fishing. However, nothing compares to when I get to spend time with my wife and our two little ones. 

What do you find to be the best features of The Fire Academy?

With backing from industry leaders such as Fire Engineering, JEMS, and FDIC International, The Fire Academy’s course library is full of unique content, including our FDIC International and JEMS Con short videos.

I really like to show folks the Course Builder because this gives them a chance to highlight their own training and it is really user-friendly.
