A few words

About Me

I began my career in the medical field at the age of 18, working in various medical facilities. In 2009, I attended and graduated from the Police Academy and started working as a law enforcement officer for 10 years. I am still an active officer today. Since the beginning of my career, I have been deeply interested in CIT (Crisis Intervention Team) training and officer wellness. I have always had a deep interest in mental health. This passion for officer wellness has allowed me put a lot of hard work into creating Code 1 Wellness. The organization was founded to aid first responders in the areas of mental health and wellness as a way to help our public servants. The operations of Code 1 Wellness are rapidly growing within the greater Kansas City communities. I believe that we are here to protect those who protect others.

Code 1 Wellness was launched in May, 2018 and that dream became reality. Since then, the amount of heartfelt response from sincere individuals has been overwhelming, resulting in greatly needed support for our organization. Passionate about mental health, wellness, and our public servants, I have a strong desire for knowledge and will continue to exceed the expectations of my peers. As a member of Code 1 Wellness, it will be my privilege to stay at the cutting edge of mental health, in both terms of wellness and in support of our public servants.
