Work Expierence

I have over 30 years of experience in the Emergency Services and Public Safety field, with 20 years plus of that in Emergency Management. I began my career in Harrison county as an Emergency Medical Technician and then moved on the Webster County where I worked as a paramedic. 

In 1996 I became a 911/OEM supervisor for the Webster County Commission in Webster Springs, WV. I also functioned as a paramedic for Webster County EMS.

During my tenure with Webster County I became an Emergency Medical Technician Instructor with the West Virginia Department of Education (RESA) as well as a Fire Service Instructor for West Virginia University.

In 2006 I left my employment with Webster County and moved to Barbour County where I took the position as Deputy Director for 911/OEM. After 4 years with Barbour County, and the Director leaving, I took over the position of Director of 911 and OEM.

In 2014 I left Barbour County and assumed the position as 911/OEM Director in Randolph County where I remain today in that position. I also work as a Paramedic for Randolph County EMS.

From 1999 to present, I have been an adjunct instructor with WVU Fire Service Extension, WVU Shirley Kimble Trainiing Center, Anniston Alabama Nobel Training Center, RESA, AB University, Glenville State College, Pierpont Technical Center and Fairmont STate College. My teaching topics include basic and advanced heatlth care courses, Hazardous Materials, National Incident Management System, 911 courses, and a multitude of Emergency Management courses. 

I have worked very closely with local county commissions in several counties. I feel that I can make Barbour County a better and more prospourus place for us to live.
