Karla joined our team in February and comes to us from the Columbus Division of Fire. She began her journey in EMS as a student at Columbus State Community College (CSCC) and an employee at St. Ann’s Hospital in 1995. As an EMT and paramedic, she has worked in and out of the hospital setting and with both private and public EMS services. She quickly discovered a passion for EMS education and has now amassed over 20 years of experience as an EMS education and program administrator. Karla holds an undergraduate degree in business administration, a Master of Education with a focus on instructional design for online learning, and a doctorate in Educational Leadership and Management.
