Welcome to the world of Emergency Medical Care. In this fast paced, exciting course we learn the fundamentals of emergency medical care at the first responder level to include basic life support, airway management, patient assessment, trauma care and medical care.
I am a lifetime resident of Mandeville and graduated from Mandeville High School in 1987. I have been teaching since 1992 and returned to the Mighty Skipper Ship as an instructor in 2000. I currently teach Emergency Medical Responder and Medical Terminology. My Louisiana teaching certifications include; Biology, Chemistry, General Science and Gifted Education. I earned my B.S. in Biology Ed. with a minor in Chemistry from SLU in 1992 and my M.S. from USM in Biology with specialization in Forensic Science in 1998. In 2003, I became certified by the Louisiana Bureau of EMS as a First Responder, Bureau Instructor, American Heart Association Basic Life Support Instructor and became a Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technician in 2008. I currently work as an EMT with New Orleans EMS as a member of their V.I.G.O.R. program.
I am passionate about my job both as an instructor and as an EMT. I believe that one person can make a difference in the life of another. I strive to put the best Emergency Medical Responders in our community and train my EMR's to provide the highest quality of care. I am looking forward to a fabulous year with my students!!! One person CAN make a difference.
So others may live~
