I have been an active member of the American Red Cross’s Disaster Mental Health Team since 2005.
I continue to assist those affected by local incidents, as well as, having traveled all over the country, assisting survivors of this nation’s worst natural disasters. I began in 2005, spending 3 weeks, all over the state of Louisiana, during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
Unfortunately, since Katrina, there have been many more natural disasters. I have been called upon by the American Red Cross to respond, around the country; including: Hurricane Ike, (Galveston, TX), The San Diego Wildfires, Midwest Floods and Hurricane Sandy, just to name a few. I travelled, (twice), to the shores of New York and New Jersey, doing my very best to assist all those affected, (including first responders), by Hurricane Sandy.
I have also served on national disaster follow up teams for the federal government’s Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
I welcome the opportunity to come speak, (with your group, condo association, etc.), to increase your knowledge and disaster readiness.
For companies and corporations: I can assist and lead your firm and employees in gaining the proper knowledge and training, to create your own company’s disaster response team.
