As a military, federal and Denver firefighter for over 37 years and a proud IAFF member for over 30 of those years, numerous experiences have helped provide me the opportunity to assist my sisters and brothers in many areas. Serving as DFD wellness coordinator, water rescue captain, fire academy instructor, peer support director, recruiter, press information officer, and as secretary-treasurer for Local 858 has complimented my career with experiences related to the unique challenges faced by firefighters. Please feel free to reach out to me if there is ever a need.
