I'm an associate professor of emergency medicine for the Department of Emergency Medicine. I'm passionate about improving patient outcomes in the prehospital setting and conduct research focused on prehospital airway management and improving outcomes from cardiac arrest. I began my career as a researcher completing a PhD in cardiovascular physiology at Case Western Reserve University. Following this, at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, I completed my medical training and residency.
Currently, I'm heavily involved in prehospital care being the EMS medical director for Delaware County EMS and the Delaware County Dispatch Center as well as associate medical director for the Worthington Fire Department. At The Ohio State University, I'm the program director for the ACGME-accredited EMS fellowship. On a national level, I'm the research and fellowship director for the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians and am part of the expert panels for the National EMS Scope of Practice Model Revision Project and the Evidence-Based Guideline for Naloxone. I'm also a member of the American Heart Association Emergency Cardiovascular Care Scientific Subcommittee and am the chair of the 2018 AHA/ECC Guidelines Focused Update for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.
