I am a retired Louisville Firefighter/EMT of 21 years with the Louisville Fire Department. I retired as a captain of seven years in 2014. I am also certified as a Hazardous Materials Technician, Emergency Medical Technician, Safety Instructor in the State of Kentucky, as well as an Instructor of Basic Life Support.
I am a native of Bowling Green, Kentucky, where I graduated from Bowling Green High School. I also attended Bowling Green Technical College where I obtained an associates degree in Mechanical Drafting. I moved to the Louisville area in 1992, where I discovered my passion and desire to want to help others. This inspired me to pursue a career as a firefighter. That passion continued through my retirement, upon which led to my development of our company, Safety NET, LLC. This desire to help others is how we developed our adage of "Learn Today. Live Tomorrow."
