I’m proud to be a professional firefighter and to be able to act as a role model in my community; the Oneida Nation of the Thames. I’m thankful for the opportunity to help protect London residents, to assist in fire safety education with my First Nation communities and work to promote and respect the uniform of a firefighter.

I take great pride in being a voice for Londoners. It is a great feeling when a citizen thanks you for the work you do. I like how our job alternates between desk work and out of office inspections. I love how I get to see firsthand, the neighborhoods that make up the forest city and that I get to interact with residents every day. We have a great team that make working here genuinely enjoyable.

My work gives me a sense of pride because I’m part of a team that makes a huge impact in people’s lives. The firefighters that work in the City of London are amazing and we have a relationship that is looked at as a family. I was born and raised here in London. Being a firefighter in my community is my chance to give back.

I enjoy everything about my job. The landscape of my city while out in the field, the camaraderie of an outstanding group of colleagues, and knowing what I do ultimately contributes to London as a whole.  While this job presents many high pressure situations, I feel privileged to provide a service to the public and knowing I can be a voice of authority for those without.
