Greg is a paramedic who has been providing care for the sick and injured in Colorado since 1994. He brings his extensive industry experience to the classroom, allowing his students to benefit from real-life situations and current practices. Greg’s educational pursuits began at the University of Colorado at Boulder with studies in music education, where just before graduation he discovered a love of emergency medicine through a chance encounter with a critically ill family friend. The experience changed his career path, and he has since taught EMT and paramedic courses in the Denver metropolitan area.
Teaching Philosophy
Greg loves working with students and helping them grow and gain the confidence needed to succeed in EMS. He believes that it is important to maintain high standards in the EMS field, and that compassion is the key to being a great care provider. Learning from mistakes made in the classroom helps students excel in the real world of EMS.
