I graduated nursing school on September 11th, 2001. I have extensive medical experience as both an RN and a medic in a variety of specialty areas, from critical care to hospice.
I enlisted in the United States military in 2011 and deployed to Afghanistan as a special operations combat medic with 2nd Ranger Battalion. I left the military in 2015 with an honorable discharge.
Upon leaving the military, I enrolled in Southern Oregon Universities' Masters in Interdisciplinary Studies. In 2018 I produced an award-winning film called Lodestar, about diminishing public access to coastal areas.
My majors include Outdoor Adventure & Expedition Leadership, Native American Studies and Documentary Film Production.
