I am the Clinical Manager at Cypress Creek EMS, a busy suburban/urban 911 provider in Northwest Harris County, Texas. We consistently lead the country in clinical excellence, research, STEMI and trauma care, and community outreach. I am responsible for overseeing all of our medical quality of care and education, and lead an amazing team of passionate and talented EMS educators and thinkers. We support our agency’s mission through quality improvement, medical protocol development, clinical research, and teaching initial EMT-Basic and Paramedic courses as well as continuing education courses for our staff and CPR/First Aid classes for the public. I still work in the street as a Paramedic and Field Supervisor and am on our nationally recognized Bicycle EMS team.
