She works closely with the program coordinator to offer advice and new and innovative ideas to keep training current, effective, and efficient. Dani is also an excellent team player and is always jumping at opportunities to help with employee training. She has truly found her niche in EMS through training; her passion for EMS was reawakened when she became an FTO and her work is greatly appreciated.

Dani’s interest in EMS began as a small child with a strong desire to follow in her dad’s footsteps to become a Firefighter. She spends most of her time off raising her two amazing children, Beau, age nine, and Quinn, age four. When she is not chasing her kids all over, she enjoys reading and riding her motorcycle.
