About me

Gender MALE
Industry Government
Occupation Retired FEMA Emergency Manager
Location Cornucopia, WI - Wisconsin, United States
Introduction The last twenty years of my working career have been in Emergency Management on a Federal level. My final full-time position was on the National Incident Management Assistance Team West stationed in California. My concluding deployment was at the National Head Quarters in Washington where I spent countless hours planning and managing the effort to house 5,000 unaccompanied children. My previous assignment was working with the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, where we helped control the spread of the Ebola virus. I've been in the trenches at the lowest level and been involved at the highest. I've watched events devolve into confusion because of petty office and national politics, revenge, and hubris. I’ve also organized and supported and witnessed, thousands of volunteers who spent their vacations gutting out and rebuilding flood-damaged homes. I've seen the worst of man and the best in times of stress. I’m a hurricane and flood survivor six times over. My point being, I’ve been around the block and walked in your shoes. Many things can and do go wrong while trying to bring order out of chaos. My hope is to mitigate a few of the challenges survivors face.
