As a kid I have always had a calling to serve people. I started my service in the United States Marine Corps where I learned such things as integrity, honor, courage, and commitment. I found that it is the intangible qualities that are most value in life. Following my exit from the Marines I continued my calling to serve people by entering into EMS. Through the years as a paramedic I have treated and cared for so many people that have helped to enrich my life. But, it wasn't long before the sea called me back to the offshore world. There is a sense of peace and calm in the chaos of offshore operations. Not only do you see the beauty that nature provides, you often find beauty in the humanity of the individuals that work out there. Working my way up the chain of the nonexistent career path for paramedics I found my way into the Offshore HSE / Medic management side of things. The call to serve is still ever present as I climb. Now the people I am serving are those on the front lines helping to ensure we raise the overall expectation and standard of the remote medic. And for a nomad like myself, finding a home to fit in has always been a bit of a challenge. But I have found that home where my gypsy soul can still flourish and grow here at Best Practice Medicine.
