Jul 2019-Oct 2019 Seeking New Employment

2017- Jun 2019 Director of Clinical Education and Chief, Chemical Casualty Care Division, U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Chemical Defense

In this role I served to mitigate the medical effects of chemical warfare agents and toxins on warfighters and civilians through training, consultation, collaboration, medical education and DOD-level doctrine development. Supervised 13 personnel including three physicians (a GP 15 civilian, an active duty 05 and a contracted civilian), a Ph.D. nurse-scientist (active duty 06) and ten ancillary and technical experts (GS 14-GS 11) with an operating budget of $2.5 M. Directed and Conducted on-site and off-site chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) training courses. Interfaced with customers/partners including the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, National Institutes of Health, the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services. Provided Expert Medical Consultative support to all government entities requiring assistance with the medical management of suspected chemical casualties. As Director of Clinical Education for the Institute and Chief of the Chemical Casualty Care Division, I led CCCD to its highest level of activity in recorded history while developing and preparing readiness-focused Clinical Education initiatives. During my tenure, the demand signal for training from all branches of the uniformed services, the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services increased at least three-fold. The number of off-site training courses increased from an average of 3-5 per year prior to 2016 to an average of 20-40 per year since I assumed the reins. I also initiated a top-to-bottom review of the curriculum and updated the training to include the teaching of recently declassified material, which is essential for medical readiness. In 2018 I served as the DoD physician representative on the advisory group sent to the UK in response to the Non-Traditional Agent exposures in Salisbury, England. Beginning in 2017 through the present I have represented USAMRICD on the CBRNE subcommittee of the National Security Council at the White House. These and additional experiences have left me well-positioned to continue to lead, direct and oversee education, consultation and training in the realm of CBRNE medical countermeasures or related disciplines.
