||I have been an active member in the fire service for 10 years. My career began with the Uniontown and Lakemore Fire Departments on a volunteer and part-time basis. During that time I became certified as a State of Ohio Level II Firefighter and Paramedic. I hold an Associates Degree in Fire Science as well as an Associates of Emergency Fire Services. My professional firefighting career began with the City of Ashland Division of Fire. I am currently employed as a professional Firefighter/Medic with the City of Akron Fire Department. I am stationed out of number 4 house and assigned to the Hazardous Materials team as a Haz-Mat technician. I also hold the rank of Lieutenant with the Lakemore Fire Department and currently oversee the Training and Fire division.
