I am a Captain with South Iredell Fire-Rescue and a full time safety professional in both general industry and construction. I have experience in fire suppression/fire protection with an AAS in Fire Protection Technology from Mitchell Community College and currently hold certification as a Structural Firefighter I&II (IFSAC) , Instructor I&II (IFSAC), Emergency Medical Technician (NCOEMS), Rescue Technician (IFSAC), Wildland Firefighter II (NWCG), Wildland Fire Assessment Program TTT through NVFC and Instructor with Preparing for Wildfires with FIRESCAPING – Master Gardener Training.

Currently I am working with community members in our district to coordinate, plan and conduct prescribed burns in a safe manner in order to meet their land objectives while at the same time capturing fuels reduction goals. I am looking to connect with others that have implemented programs in their jurisdiction and learn how to better implement FAC Programs in my area.

I am currently working on creating a team of certified burners within my fire department in order to better assist our community members manage the fuel loads on their lands. I'm hoping to engage ore practitioners around this topic.
