I am recently retired from South Metro Fire Rescue. I spent 32 years working as a Paramedic and almost 24 of those years with South Metro/Littleton Fire. I started volunteering with the Littleton Firefighters Foundation back in 2001 and became the Treasurer in 2003. When Littleton and South Metro merged, the Foundations merged as well. I became the Treasurer for the newly merged South Metro Professional Firefighters Foundation. I worked to develop new Bylaws for this organization as well as a new business structure that elected the current board. I have organized as well as worked many of the fundraising events to raise money for this amazing Foundation. I just stepped down as Treasurer and currently sit on the Board as a Director. I’m very proud of all the work that several people have done in the past and continue to do in the present to make this Foundation strong.
