EMS/Pre-Med

WELCOME!
 

Emergency Medical Services/Pre-Med Program

 

It is an honor to be a staff member of Veterans Tribute Career & Technical Academy!

 

I began my career in the medial field as an Army Combat Medic (68W).  As a medic I worked under different medical echelons such as ambulance platoons, ambulance companies, medical treatment facilities, and emergency rooms.  I trained and led soldiers as Platoon Sergeant and First Sergeant.  I proudly served as a medic for 20 years and I currently hold an EMT instructor certification. 

 

Dedication, compassion, knowledge, and strong work ethics are traits I hold dearly and believe every student should be held accountable for.  As an instructor, I am dedicated to provide students with rigorous standards and support.  I am committed to enchancing each student's  education and well-being.  Communication between teacher, student, and parents is the key for success.  It is my personal policy to maintain open and unconditional lines of communication with students and their parents.
