BS-EMS from UNM (2015)
I began my EMS career by taking my EMT-Basic course at the UNM SOM EMSA. After I graduated the course and obtained my license, I began working as an EMT for Superior Ambulance Service (Albuquerque and Torrance County) in 2012. During my field time there, I also entered the EMSA's Paramedic Program and completed the course in 2014 as Valedictorian. Also in 2014, I began working for Albuquerque Ambulance Service as a Paramedic and for the EMSA as a Student Tutor and Lab Proctor. I was brought aboard as a Faculty Lecturer I for the EMSA in December of 2015. My main responsibilities as a Lecturer I with the EMSA consist of building, implementing and teaching a variety of paramedic based curriculum topics for the UNM/USAF PJ Paramedic Program on Kirtland Air Force Base. While I have many, my main goal as a UNM Faculty Lecturer is to aid in producing a high functioning pre-hospital provider to advance and improve the field of EMS in our healthcare system.
