Public Service

I have served my community starting with the Civil Air Patrol (1 year) and the American Red Cross (6 years)

I spent 12 years in Emergency Medical Services, culminating with a few years as deputy commander on a Weapons of Mass Destruction Medical Response Team,"We did Anthrax, before Anthrax was cool!" I was with the United States Public Health Service USPHS.

Established in 1798, the USPHS is a principal component of the Department of Health and Human Services. It is the major health arm of the Federal Government and the world's foremost health agency. The USPHS is composed of approximately 6,500 commissioned corps officers and 50,000 civil service employees.

The mission of the USPHS Commissioned Corps (established in 1889) is to provide highly trained and mobile health professionals who carry out programs to promote the health of the Nation, understand and prevent disease and injury, assure safe and effective drugs and medical devices and deliver health services to Federal beneficiaries, and furnish health expertise in time of war or other National or international emergencies. As one of the seven Uniformed Services of the United States, the Commissioned Corps is a specialized career system, headed by the Surgeon General of the United States. When your relatives came to America, it was the USPHS officers at Ellis Island which gave them health checks before allowing them in the country!


I am a graduate of my local Sheriff's department civilian academy, and was appointed by the Sheriff in 1999. I was a uniformed civilian officer who rode with a sworn deputy, or patrolled on my own throughout my county.
