During over 25 years of experience in healthcare and related sectors, I have worked with managed care organizations, state and local public health departments, coalitions, community health improvement partnerships, and non-profit associations and foundations. In my “spare” time, I sit on several Boards of Directors for non-profit organizations, and am a past president of the Minnesota Public Health Association. Finally, with over 20 years as a paid-on-call firefighter and current Battalion Chief with the Golden Valley Fire Department, I am uniquely qualified to explore the synergy between public health and public safety in the emerging awareness of increased cancer, cardiovascular and emotional trauma risk among firefighters, as well as pandemic response.
