As State Representative for District 39, I strongly support:

In October of 1998, I was hired by the City of Weslaco Fire Department EMS, which allowed me to provide pre-hospital care and to assist the sick, and injured within the community. Within a year of employment with the Fire Department I completed the Fire Academy and obtained my licensure in paramedicine through Texas State Technical College. Later in 2000, I was hired by Valley Aircare as a Critical Care Flight Paramedic to provide prehospital treatment both Nationally and Internationally transporting critically ill patients to higher level of care facilities.

While working with the fire department, I became an instructor in several areas giving me the ability to extend my knowledge to educate the community by offering free CPR courses. I recently, became a Coordinator through Texas Department of Health, which has allowed me to provide a Self Study "In House" Emergency Medical Technology program for EMT and Paramedic training at a lower cost for fire departments across the Rio Grande Valley.
