Bio: I have been a member of the fire service for 26 years. I joined Walla Walla County Fire District #4 in October 1988 as a volunteer. In 1991, I was hired by the City of Walla Walla Fire Department as a career firefighter/EMT. Due to my interest in EMS, I continued my education at Columbia Basin College and obtained my paramedic certification. I was also an active member of the Technical Rescue and HAZMAT Teams at Walla Walla Fire. In June 2001, I was promoted to Captain, with the responsibly of managing code enforcement, inspections, public education and the technical response team.
February 2004, I accepted the position of Deputy Chief with Walla Walla County Fire District #4 and in April 2005, was appointed to Fire Chief.
During my tenure, area fire chiefs have worked hard to build cooperation and collaboration among all fire departments to provide the best service to our citizens. I am a firm believer that by working together, we all can accomplish much more than we can individually.
