Roswell NM
Well a number of years ago I spent 20 years in the US Army as a medic. Retied and went to work as a paid NREMT-I and EMT Instructor. Let both of those lapse when I went back to school and got my RN. Worked everything from OR to ICU and ER. Currently I’m still licensed as a RN but working for the State of NM but in a non- direct care position. Have also been a Volunteer Firefighter and Captain in charge of a 13 officer Reserve Police Unit.
Thanks
