Currently I am a Wildfire Mitigation Program Coordinator for the Colorado Springs Fire Department. I started out as a wildland firefighter on details with crews and with a Type 2 IA handcrew. This grew my love of fire and I continued to progress towards prescribed fire and wildfire mitigation.

Previously I was working in the forest mitigation and wildfire mitigation field. I was the Fuels and Wildfire Management Specialist for Granby Ranch Resort, which is a 6,000 acre 4 season resort (ski, bike, golf) with a home owner community. I was instrumental in its creation from ground zero and since then it has growth into a successful program and continues to flourish working with local agencies to increase wildfire resilience and forest health.
