Additional Skills

33 Years healthcare experience. I am passionate about quality healthcare both pre and post hospital. Many of my jobs (including the present) required me to make live presentations to employees, improvise and use effective time management. I have broadcast in less then ideal situations such as from the scene of a plane crash, traffic reporter in an airplane and on the ground in the middle of accident scenes and once on the roof of a 20 story building doing live traffic report.

My experiences, including non-broadcasting roles, have required me to communicate effectively both written and verbal.
