Started my career in 2000 in the Detroit area.  Moved up to northern Michigan in 2006. 
Married to my best friend for 17+ yrs he is also a first responder. We have a 13 year old son and 4 legged fur baby daughter. 
I enjoy being at the ocean looking for sharks teeth, listening to the waves crash into the shore and the smell of the salty air.  Riding my quad with family and friends. camping, bonfires and hiking trails.  I also do photography for fun.  Taking pictures of sunsets, nature and my son. 
I’m really honored and excited to be part of such a fantastic group. Helping others is a great thing, why else would we do this job?  But helping our own is a whole different ball game.  We need to take care of each other and cancel the stigma attached to asking for help.  It doesn’t make you weak!  It means you’re human and know what your limits are.  We are a family and here to help pick each other up when we can’t take that next step!  Like everyone else has said before me, my phone is always on and I’m always a available if anyone needs to talk.  Just call or text.
