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.
