Paramedic

I was born and raised in Atlanta GA, but moved up to South Carolina where I got my Paramedic certification and worked for 3 years. My family and I have been in the PNW since 2019 and we love it! I'm thrilled to be a part of the Milton Freewater community.

I was born and and partially raised in the outskirts of Flint, Michigan and moved to Milton-Freewater in 05. When I’m not working excavation or volunteering I’m most likely in the mountains hunting, hiking or fishing. I’ve been volunteering at MFRFD on and off since 2016 and wouldn’t wanna be anywhere else!

 I was born and raised in the WW Valley. I got my first taste of Fire Service when I moved to Goldendale, WA, 9 years ago. Since returning to Oregon, I've continued my volunteer fire fighter service. Spending time with my family and two dogs in the outdoors are some of my favorite things, when I'm not studying to become an EMT and serving our community.
