I joined the fire service in 2002 as a fire explorer with Castle Rock Fire Explorer Post 107 while still attending Douglas County High School here in Castle Rock. In 2005 I started my first career position with Lake Dillon Fire in Summit County, Colorado. I also transitioned into a volunteer firefighter position with Castle Rock Fire and Rescue at that time. On Feb 2, 2007, I was hired as a career firefighter/EMT with Castle Rock Fire and Rescue. During my time, I have been promoted to firefighter/paramedic, engineer, and currently hold the rank of Lieutenant. As an active member in Local 4116 since 2007, I was nominated and voted into the executive board in 2014. Since 2019 I have had the privilege to fill the role of President for the brothers and sisters of Local 4116.
