Chad graduated Albia High School in 2003, proceeding on to Indian Hills graduating with an Associate of Arts degree in 2005. Returning to Indian Hills, Chad became a Paramedic Specialist in 2008 and continued his schooling through Mercy School of EMS becoming a Critical Care Paramedic in 2014. Chad is a Critical Care Paramedic for Monroe County Hospital & Clinics (MCHC) Emergency Department.
As a Critical Care Paramedic, Chad provides advanced critical care during inter-facility transports, including performing advanced clinical patient assessments and providing invasive care beyond the standard scope of advanced pre-hospital care.
Coming from a family history in health care and law enforcement, Chad decided to pursue the health care industry. “I enjoy helping people and making a difference in the community. I’ve always had an interest in medical science and medical processes,” stated by Chad.
Chad enjoys the constant change from day to day not knowing what each will bring, the feeling of truly making a difference in people’s lives and helping in their time of need. A paramedic must be calm, cool and collected when called to the scene of an accident or emergency medical situation. Chad holds all of these qualities and utilizes his quick and effective skills to treat sick or injured patients, helping them cope with trauma.
Everyone has a main goal in life. Chad’s focus in life is to be successful and live life well with family and great friends. “Health care can be a stressful and demanding job, but even with that being true, the reward that you get making a difference and being there for people when they really need you, makes it all worthwhile,” shared by Chad.
