Our Geisinger Family
DO, FAEMS, FACEPI became an EMT at Penn State University in 1992 while completing a degree in, of all things, engineering! I quickly developed a passion of medicine, which led me to paramedic school, and eventually medical school and emergency medicine residency. My EMS exposure and experienced allowed me to complete an EMS Fellowship with the Fire Department of New York City (FDNY), and subsequently return to Geisinger to form and lead the Division of EMS. It is an honor and privilege to serve with my EMS colleagues in Geisinger EMS, Geisinger Life Flight, and Geisinger Mobile Healthcare.
Advanced EMT, GEMS-DanvilleI was working at Geisinger Health in Environmental Services when I had the opportunity to take an Emergency Responder class at my local fire company. I immediately was “bitten by the EMS bug” and enrolled in an EMT class after which I transferred to Geisinger EMS in Danville. Since that time I have went on to become a certified Advanced EMT and have cross trained as a Medical Transport Dispatcher. It is nice to have opportunities to move in our system and develop new skills.
EMT ApprenticeI’ve enjoyed my time learning and growing as an EMT through Geisinger because of my amazing co-workers. They’re some great teachers with tremendous patience and kindness. I’m always learning something new and I love that about my job.
Director Life Flight OperationsGeisinger has provided me amazing opportunities for professional and personal growth. I began my career at Geisinger as a Life Flight communications specialist. I received my paramedic and nursing education at Geisinger. I was provided opportunities to learn and grow as a paramedic, nurse, manager and now the program director for Life Flight.
I am thankful for the countless mentors I have had over the years that fostered my development as a leader.
