|Hobart, WI – I am an avid motorcycle enthusiast for over forty years riding everything from custom choppers to hi-tech touring bikes. The last 15 years have been focused on two cycling interests: long-distance touring and classic bike restorations. My other passion is ocean sailing and I have been the Safety at Sea Instructor for the Navy Sea Cadets. My emergency medical training includes national certification and Wisconsin licensing as an Emergency Medical Technician, which I practice as a First Responder for the Village of Hobart, as an employee with County Rescue Services, and as a Teaching Assistant for the EMS Programs of Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. My Emergency Medical Services experience proves how critical the first few minutes of treatment can be to an injured person. The Road Guardian program enforces how critical Scene Management and other aspects of responding to an accident are to the motorcyclist. I am enthusiastic about being able to share this knowledge and training with my fellow bikers via the Accident Scene Management training programs.

Since retiring in 2010 and relocating to the Richmond, VA area to be near their two grandchildren, Jeff says he has “focused on correcting years of self-abuse and neglect and explored public service in a more direct manner”.

Jefferson City, MO – My first motorcycle experience was a dirt bike that I could never seem to get enough of. My father owned a 175 which I always seemed a passenger of. The first bike I personally owned was a 1979 Honda CB750K. I drove it daily until one day I blew out 3rd gear and then we had kids. I looked around for years for something that I wanted and found a 1985 Honda Goldwing GL1200 Aspencade. In my first full year I put over 10,000 miles on it going back and forth to work including a few day trips and group rides. I currently belong to our church’s riding group of over 400 riders and participate in the Patriot Guard. I attended my first ERC training this summer, which I highly recommend to all riders. My wife and my youngest daughter ride with me frequently.
I’ve been a paramedic for over 25 years. My most recent experience was in a high volume area as a supervisor. I have treated several patients of motorcycle accidents over the years. All of these were the result of speed and/or the negotiation of a turn. I have been a CPR instructor for most of my career and an instructor for other EMS programs including adjunct faculty for EMTs.

Redford, MI – I was introduced to motorcycles by my father at 3 years old, I have loved them ever since. When he would take me to school on his motorcycle I was always saying, “DADDY GO FASTER”, this lasted my entire life.
Over 20 years ago my husband and my best friend bought my first bike, a Honda 250. He is an awesome teacher. In no time I needed a bigger bike, I told him I was tired of shifting 2 to his 1 to keep up on my little bike.
In 1996 he asked what I wanted for Christmas, I thought about it for 2 seconds and replied, “Road Race Lessons”. I had to wait till July for my present, but it was well worth the wait. One week after class we were on our way to Chicago to buy my first race bike. I raced for three years and became the first woman expert road racer in Michigan. It was the experience of a lifetime. My husband was my wrench, he always taught me that the most important things were to ride safe, and finish the race. I did have my share of spills though. There is a saying amongst racers, “If you are not crashing you are not racing”. I must have been racing. During the 3 years of making the circuit with the Great Lakes Road Racing Association, I managed to cover 8,000 miles while negotiating 65,000 turns at an average speed of 75 mph. I missed judged 8 turns, which resulted in 4 concussions, turning my spine backward, breaking one finger, one foot, and a fingernail.
After our 4 kids grew up and left the nest, we decided it was time to take our life long trip. This was to ride our bikes cross-country. We bought our cruisers and off we went. It was an incredible adventure; we still have 3 states left to see.
I belong to the Women on Wheels Free Spirit Chapter of Michigan. I was introduced to Bystander Assistance at a seminar given by my fellow members and friends Tammie and Ann, who are also Instructors here in Michigan. I was so impressed with the information that was being given, I decided to become an EMT and take the instructor training as well, so I could help get this most valuable information out to more bikers. During our trip there were areas that we didn’t see a car on the road for 2 or more hours, what would we have done? Cell phone service, forget it. This is the reason I am so excited to have the opportunity to help make a difference.
I can be contacted by filling out the form online.

Southampton, MA – I started my fire service career in 1989 after growing up around the local fire department (born and raised in Southampton, MA).

Shorewood, IL – I am an EMT-B, LPN, RN/BSN as well as an AHA CPR/First Aid instructor. I am currently working on my MSN with the focus being education. Once I complete my MSN I will sit for my (CNE) Certified Nurse Educator. As you can see, education is a love of mine! I currently work as a PCU nurse with a focus in cardiac at a local hospital in my area. I have been an nurse since 2009. I was on a fire department for approximately a year as an EMT-B. For me nursing is not a career, it is a passion that I believe strongly in. I believe that is important to give back to my community and pay it forward in an effort to help others do what they love.
I have been an avid motorcycle rider since 2004 and have ridden racetracks two up. I started my riding career with sport bikes and I now own a Harley Fat Boy. I prefer to be the passenger instead of the driver as I have gotten older. My husband and I belong to American Veterans Motorcycle Riding Association Chapter 10 as well as Rescue Riders. I have done more studying for nursing school than I can remember on the back of our Harley. There is just something about the open road that frees my mind and makes it easier to concentrate. Can you relate? I would love to be your instructor. Contact me and let me know how I can help get you and or your group trained in Accident Scene Management.

Des Plaines, Illinois – I began riding 2010 after taking the 1st all women’s riding course at a Harley dealer on a mother’s day weekend. I love riding with my Widows Sons brothers and sisters on my Harley Davidson 2015 Softail breakout.
I am an RN with a Master’s degree in nursing and am board certification in nursing informatics. Early in my career, I worked as an ER and ICU nurse and after receiving my masters in nursing, I went on to clinical informatics. As a clinical informatics consultant, I have worked with various hospitals across the United States building electronic documentation. I have taught doctors, nurses and other hospital employees how to use and integrate the electronic medical record into their practice. Currently, I serve as a nurse executive for 6 Chicagoland clinics.
My interest in ASM started when I met the founder, Vicki Sanfelipo, through a mutual friend at my 1st Midwest Women Riders (MWR) event in 2019. After talking with her about ASM courses, I knew that this is something I wanted to get involved with (then COVID hit). I finally got a chance to take the course with Vicki as my instructor in June 2022 and shortly after decided that I would like to teach this class to fellow riders.

Meridian, ID – My lifelong attraction to anything mechanically driven started on a “tote goat” around the age of 6. Some 50+ years later I’ll ride a 4-wheeler or snowmobile whenever possible but my first choice is always either the Electra-glide for touring or BMW R1150R just for fun. Even as an Idaho STAR Program Instructor I’m constantly looking for ways to improve my riding skills and am constantly taking advanced riding courses. I am also a member of the Society for Motorcycle Safety Administrators, the Idaho Coalition for Motorcycle Safety, LOH, AMA & Patriot Guards, and a proud Lifetime Road Guardian. Currently, I serve as the WOW Ambassador for Idaho & road captain for the Idaho chapter of Women on Wheels. Along with being a Wilderness First Responder, Red Cross WFR/First Aid/CPR Instructor I believe the ASM program should be a requirement for anyone who rides or just loves motorcycling. I look forward to advancing ASM accident scene management and emergency care training for riders in and around Idaho. Come out and take a class, be ready to assist, and provide aid to our fellow riders when the unfortunate happens!

Nampa, ID – Deby has been an active participant in anything with wheels most of her life. Her mechanical aptitude was nurtured from an early age as she worked on and restored many different cars, so her interest in motorcycles came naturally.

She says, “I am passionate about motorcycles and like most things I’m passionate about; I read everything I could get my hands on about riding. I took several of the local MSF STAR courses and am on my bike nearly everyday practicing and enjoying the ride”. Deby joined several different riding groups, including Motor Maids, Patriot Guard Riders and Women On Wheels®, AMA & Idaho Coalition for Motorcycle Safety. In 2016 she became the director for her local Women On Wheels® chapter and continues to serve in that capacity.

Waianae, HI – I have been riding motorcycles since I was a young child. My first Harley Davidson motorcycle was a 2005 Softail Deuce and I also ride a 2008 Electra Glide Ultra Classic. I am a member of the HOG organization and Founder, Founding President and current member of the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club (BSMC) Jackson, TN.
I currently serve as a soldier on active duty military for 20+ years with several deployments to combat zones to include Desert Shield/Desert Storm where I had my first experience as first responder to traumatic injuries. Other deployments include Operation Restore Hope, Somalia and two deployments to Operation IRAQI Freedom where I was recognized for aiding and assisting wounded nationals as the result of a deadly night indirect fire attack. Continuing education with the Army Combat Life Saver Course (CLS) program made this possible.
As the Senior Military Science Instructor at the University of Tennessee, Martin I developed and managed the military motorcycle mentorship program for the ROTC program at the college. While in West Tennessee I Orchestrated the first Ezra Howard Ride to honor WWII Veteran Ezra Howard who fought with the all-famous black 92nd Infantry Division known as the “Buffalo Soldiers”. Thanks to three counties and the support of local officials and police escorts, over 250 motorcycle riders rode over 65 miles with no incidents.

Panama City Beach, FL – Greetings from Panama City Beach! I’m known by the nickname “Purple” and have been an RN for 35+ years. Most of my clinical experience has been in Critical Care settings with time in PACU and ER. I’ve been riding my own motorcycle since 1982. My first bike was a 1963 Panhead FLH. Currently, I ride a 2003 Night Train. In 2006 I took 3 months off work and rode the 48 states logging in 18K+ miles. Long-distance riding is my passion! When I returned home from the ride a friend on Facebook linked me up with ASM. I was hooked after taking the classes and in February ’07 I went to Atlanta and took classes with Phil & Jean Herndon to become SC’s first ASM Instructor. Since then I’ve traveled around SC teaching and meeting some great biker folks. I feel everyone should take these classes and learn to save a life. The life that’s saved could be a friend, a loved one, or even your own! Contact me to schedule a class or a presentation for your group.

Dunedin, FL – …rolling along, knees in the breeze…..everything is great…..taking in the scenery, and being one with the road…..and then, before you know it….a biker is down. Now what? If you want to find out the answer and how to help your brother or sister of the road…..come out to a class and learn how you can be there in your brothers/sisters time of need. You never think it’s going to happen to you, your family, or friends. We’ve all buried too many from that “left hand turn”. “I didn’t see him….” These words are heard over and over……
Being one with the road is my life, my passion. I’ve witnessed many accidents happen, lost many a brother/sister through the years. An Independent supporting: Bikers Down and Mother on a Mission, ABATE of Florida (life member/Skyway Chapter Charter Member), Suncoast Brotherhood Life Member ( MRO), MAFT (Motorcycle Awareness Foundation of Tennessee), and the local biker community…, I’m currently pursuing my RN/ BSN. I’ve been an LPN for 24 years, the last 16 years in Anticoagulation Therapy. The past 5 years have been spent traveling as a Clinical Specialist in that same field, working to educate patients and medical professionals about the benefits of High Quality Anticoagulation Management.
I was put on my first motorcycle at 5 years old. I was hooked. I’ve been riding most of my adult life, and have logged many miles. Only have 6 states out of 50 left to ride through. Have been hit by a cage and knocked off my scoot while stopped at a stop sign (and she was a nurse!). Went down a while back and was lucky enough to live to tell about it….being airlifted to a local trauma center with a bleed in the brain. Now it’s time to pay it forward and spread the word…..teaching you how to help your brothers and sisters if the need should ever arise.
Contact me by filling out the form online if you are interested in hearing more about classes. I am available for Local (Florida) or long distance on-site presentations!

Port Richey, FL – I hail originally from NY, Long Island to be specific. I now live in Port Richey, FL. I got my M/C license and my first bike at 17 years old (1973). Three years prior to that I started volunteering at Nassau County Medical Center in the Emergency Room, as an Explorer Scout. Our adviser was the administrator of the hospital, which gave us special privileges. It was fantastic. I logged 2400 hrs. before I graduated HS. I got myself to and from the Hospital with a Jawa Moped. You could ride a 2 wheel vehicle that didn’t go more that 25mph legally without a license. You had to be at least 18 to become an EMT and to get a regular motor vehicle operator’s license, I was already on the Wantagh-Levittown Volunteer Ambulance Corps. In 1975 I became an EMTI at South Nassau Community Hospital in Oceanside, NY, which is what my level of practice is. In 1975 I added NY Firefighter to my skills, have been an instructor for CPR, First Aid and an EMT evaluator for almost as long. I have also been an evaluator at SOLO, a wilderness EMT training facility in NH. I have owned many bikes but currently ride a K1200LT BMW. In 2004 I became an MSF instructor, and have taught here in FL, NH, NYC, and MA. I believe very strongly in the ASM program and feel honored to now be an Instructor. In 1998 I was in a Severe Multi-Trauma Motorcycle accident and had it not been for the trained people who responded quickly, I would not be here. I believe that the more people who are trained the more people who can survive, not only for the Quantity of life, but the Quality of life. If we can make a difference I want to be a part of that. I am currently a member of West Pasco County Medical Reserve Corps and Pasco Sheriff’s Office. Also a Riders Edge Instructor and Rental Manager at Tampa Harley Davidson.

Santee, CA – I am 53 yrs young and as some would say a “Probie” or “New Kid” as I came late to riding. As an RN for 29 years working in ICU, ER, & Operating Rooms around California & Washington, motorcyclists were known as “Donor cycles”. So it was with much trepidation I made the decision to learn to ride when I relocated to an area that made it a financial benefit. I failed my first MSF class (from fear) but had a motorcycle waiting for me in my garage (my Baby Girl an’06 Heritage Softail). Needless to say a learner’s permit, 5-hour riding class, and another skill test later I was an officially licensed motorcyclist! And I haven’t looked back! My only regret is that in starting so late I have missed tons of riding opportunities.
I now have 3 yrs & a change of riding under my belt (61,000 mi) and look forward to riding every day. I am taking a more active role by membership in American Motorcycling Assoc., my National HOG org; as well as, my local HOG & LOH chapter’s (Puget Sound). I am also renewing my ACLS certification. I have spent 15+ years as a preceptor teaching students how to function and think in critical settings.
I was introduced to ASM at the Women’s Conference in Keystone, CO in the summer of 2009 (absolutely awe-inspiring). I was excited to learn how to incorporate this teaching skill into my Love of Riding. One of my sayings is: “Knowledge is a free gift and we can never receive enough gifts.” So take it and ruuun with it !!!

Dewey, AZ – I’ve been a rider for 12 years …learned on a Honda Rebel and now ride a Street Glide. I’ve been CPR and First Aid certified for almost 14 years …needed to be as the Leader of my daughter’s Brownie Troop! I’m married to George who’s a Certified RiderCoach for the CMSP and have 2 grown children, 4 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 fish. Our son Andrew was in a bike accident in November 2002 …spent 18 days in a coma, broken femur and wrist, brain stem injuries – lucky for us that the accident was right in front of our local hospital and EMTs were on the scene within minutes. If the accident had happened anywhere else, with no one nearby trained to help, we know we would have lost him. George and I own and live at Valley V-Twin, a motorcycle dealership in Indio, CA. I am a member of the AMA, Sustaining Member of the MRF & Lifetime HOG member. We’ve brought the ASM classes to our area because we are dedicated to promoting rider training, rider safety, and motorcycle awareness in the State of California – including organizing an annual Motorcycle Awareness Month event every year for the last 4 years – helping others learn what to do in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident just fits in! Becoming an ASM Instructor was an obvious next step. I look forward to sharing my knowledge, training, and experience with you!
