I began my career in the fire and rescue profession in 1999. Initially, I was a volunteer in Prince George County with Prince George Volunteer Fire Department Co. 1. In 2001, I transitioned to the city of Colonial Heights Fire Department as a Firefighter/ Medic. In 2006, I began a tenure with the Department of Defense/ Department of the Army as a Firefighter/ Medic. I was assigned to Fort AP Hill and then transferred to Fort Lee where, in 2007, I assumed a position with the Fire Prevention Office as a Fire Inspector. In May 2015, I joined Hopewell Fire and Rescue as the Fire Marshal/ Fire Official for the City. I am a certified Fire Investigator, Law Enforcement Officer, Fire Inspector and Public Educator through the Virginia Fire Marshals’ Academy. I am a graduate from J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College with an Associates degree in Fire Science and a graduate from Columbia Southern University with a Bachelor’s degree in Fire Science.
