CatHamm

I have been riding since about age 18. To me there is nothing more peaceful than my face in the wind being kissed by the sun. Several years ago my life was forever changed after a motorcycle accident which resulted in the loss of my leg. What I have learned through this is that education is our best resource for accident and fatality reduction. 18 years of nursing from trauma, ER, ICU to training others in a variety of medical interventions does not give me the ability to avoid life’s curve balls but it does give me the tenacity to pick myself up and go on. I am involved in ABATE, Racine South Eastern HOG, AMA, Diamond Posse and Veteran Outreach Programs. I would love to set up a class for your group and I love to travel.

Charlie

Charlie has been an avid motorcycle enthusiast since he was age 14.   “It just gets in your blood and you love to ride through the great outdoors!”   Charlie and his wife (Kim) are currently living in Johannesburg, South Africa on assignment with his wife’s company, Cola-Cola.   Previously, we lived in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.  We are both American citizens from Laramie, Wyoming seeing the world.

Currently, we ride our 2013 Harley CVO Ultra Classic with the Johannesburg H.O.G. Chapter and our goal is to cover all 9 South African provinces this year.  Our adventures take us to some very remote and beautiful places.  Having first aid skills and being well trained in outdoor emergency care is essential.  “Distances are quite vast, and you could wait quite a long time for an ambulance.  Plus, you never know what level of ambulatory care might show up.  Ambulances in South Africa are privately owned and severely underfunded.  They range from simply a means of transportation with a gurney to some with full EMT equipment including oxygen, backboards, medications, etc.  Services just aren’t consistent or like what you’d see like in other parts of the world.”  In South Africa and other 2nd/3rd world countries you must be ready for anything.

Part of the year, Charlie is also a Professional Ski Patroller from Laramie, Wyoming.  First Aid for ski injuries is very similar to first aid for the motorcyclist.  You need to be ready to use your own first aid kit and be very self-sufficient.  The injured person is outdoors, usually far from an urban center, and likely has a serious muscular skeletal injury requiring bandaging, splitting or in some cases, much more severe traumatic injuries.  As a Ski Patroller, our training relies on The National Ski Patrol’s “Outdoor Emergency Care” body of knowledge and contains most of the DOT EMT skills but replaces some urban environment training with self-reliance and individual skills essential for outdoor emergencies.

Prior setting out over 3 years ago internationally, Charlie ran his own company and taught Project Management in the USA as well as had multiple positions with Microsoft, IBM, KPMG, and Teradyne.  He has 35+ years of management consulting and project management experience to share as well.

Charlie is available for classes world-wide.  He may be reached at +27 76 691 7346 (Johannesburg cell) or in the USA at 770-446-0876 (worldwide voicemail).  Contact him online here.  Shinny side up fellow riders!!

He works part time as an EMT for both two local hospital ambulance services. Prior to transferring to the fire department, Craig spent a year as a police officer. Craig’s motorcycle interest began as he grew up in Hawaii and watched his father do club roadracing on bikes as varied as Yamahas, Hondas, and Triumphs, but didn't get his first motorcycle, a new 1999 Ducati Supersport, until he was 29. After taking the bike through 9 states and putting 35,000 miles on the Supersport (that's a million in Ducati miles!), his stable has expanded to include a 2008 Ducati 848. He's a member of Ducati Owners Club of the US and US Desmo. Lisa has been an EMT for the past 6 years and works for a local ambulance service. Lisa was introduced to motorcycles when she started seeing Craig about a year and a half ago. She has enjoyed being a passenger so much that she hopes to learn to ride and get her own Ducati Monster. Lisa is a CPR and PEPP instructor and is currently enrolled in paramedic class in hopes of getting her medic license in June of this year.  Craig originally certified as an instructor with ASM in 2004, but decided to recertify with his fiancé, Lisa, to get back into the program with a fresh start. Craig and Lisa are getting married in June and their honeymoon plans include a trip to Italy, and yes….. the Ducati factory is a planned stop!

Jeff West

Jeff bought his first bike (50 cc Montgomery Wards) when he was 18 yrs old and traded it in five days later for a 360 cc Benelli. Jeff says he “rode the Benelli for two years until someone turned left in a failed attempt to do away with my future wife and I in front of Union Station, Washington, DC”. Subsequently he and his wife Pam spent several years in the Honda family until the requirements of being “responsible” adults and parents had taken them off two wheels for far too long. For Jeff’s fiftieth birthday, in 1999, his marvelous wife bought him a ’93 FLHS (Harley’s short-lived Electra Glide Sport).

Since then, Jeff has been a loyal member of Fairfax VA Chapter H.O.G. serving as Safety Officer, Assistant Director, Director and a long-time Road Captain. I have assisted in delivering Group Riding Training, Road Captain Training, Boss Hogg Training. Jeff developed and delivered Passenger Training and Incident Management Training to his group as well.

Much of Jeff’s career was in the Federal Government involving training subjects as diverse as the Metric System, Handicapped Accessibility, Building and Evacuation Safety, Training the Trainer, Public Speaking, Grant Application Review for subject-matter experts, and Grants Management and Administration for Federal Managers.

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”. Jeff has secured his EMR (Emergency Medical Responder) Certification, attended the Citizens Police Academy, the Citizens Fire Academy and Senior Advocate training. He has earned certifications in CPR and AED for the Health Provider, Wilderness First Aid, Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support, Pediatric Emergency Care, and Public Safety Response to Terrorism – Awareness. Jeff has been active on the Chesterfield CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) and traveled to Memphis, TN in June 2014 to complete ASM Basic & Advanced Training. Jeff is currently in pursuit of EMT training.

Jeff says “I have long admired the good work done through ASM training and he looks forward to the opportunity to bring that benefit to riders in Virginia and neighboring states. To contact Jeff fill out the online form.

I have been a registered nurse for 22 years with my early beginnings as an EMT and then a mobile intensive care transport medic for 911 in San Diego, California. The combination of Nursing and Paramedicine lead to my becoming a Flight Nurse. I am currently employed as a Flight Nurse with 10 years of critical care air ambulance experience and a professional membership in the Air &Surface Transport Nurses Association. I have a Master’s degree in Nursing specializing in Nursing Education with teaching and certifications in Basic CPR, Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support and critical care.

In the past, I have worked for NASA as a researcher, authored journal papers and developed a Drivers Safety Course for the United States Air Force. My career is set in safety and safety education so teaching for ASM is a perfect match for me. I like that ASM is unique to motorcycling. I believe it is important to be safe and to have the knowledge to manage an accident scene from a rider’s point of view.  It is our responsibility to watch out for each other. I want to be a part of that. See you in class!  Contact online to schedule a class.

IKaren is a wife, the mother of 2 children, grandmother of 7 and great grandmother of 1 amazing great granddaughter named Scarlet. Having no previous riding experience, Karen’s husband introduced her to motorcycle riding late in life. At age 50, she took the riding course and began riding a Suzuki 800. After a medical issue slowed her down she returned to riding and today rides a1996 Goldwing Trike named ”The Green Hornet”. She and her husband, “TEDEBEAR” are actively involved with the Hard Core Christian Riders motorcycle ministry in Magnolia Texas where he now serves as President while Karen serves as Secretary and Sergeant at Arms.

Karen says “As a motorcyclist, I am aware of the ever increasing accidents involving motorcycles and that the actions taken immediately following a crash greatly determine the outcome of the victim. Managing the scene and proper assistance before EMS arrival could mean the difference between life and death, or permanent damage. Doing the wrong procedures or making mistakes at the scene could have negative consequences when untrained bystanders get involved. This vital ASM life saving information needs to be brought to every motorcycle riding group, as well as independent riders as it could very well help save the life of someone near and dear to you.” To schedule a class fill out the online form. I look forward to setting up a class for you.

Kathleen has been in the health care industry for over 25 years. She says, “Being a Registered Nurse is my passion”! When she first heard about ASM training she  was excited to find there was something out there that would allow her to work  along with her family to mix her hobby of riding motorcycles with her medical training.

Kathleen has come upon motorcycle accidents and assisted, but never was first on the scene in a traumatic situation. She always wondered what she would do.  When she found a class that trains people to handle trauma situations and was
given the opportunity to train others to properly handle emergency situations, she knew this was right for her.

Kathleen is a member of the Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA) and is the New Jersey State Director for Motorcycle Sport Touring Association (MSTA). Motorcycling has allowed Kathleen, her husband and her son to travel throughout the United States and Europe.

Kathleen Explains, ”This training will better prepare me if someone encounters a motorcycle accident and will allow me to educate many of the people that I ride with. Being prepared to ride a motorcycle is more than just having proper gear, it
is knowing how to assess and administer proper Accident Scene Management!

Alan Cruet PicAllan has a varied professional background in training and course development, including managing training organizations, and training management. His first “damage control” experience was through submarine service damage control training. Since then, after being tasked with first response to many incidents over the years, he vowed to be trained versus helpless in those types of situations. Through Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) experience (where I trained trainers for FEMA) he further internalized his skills through drills. Allan is so committed to improving first response that the completed his EMT-B training and National registry examination in June 2014.
Allan is a State of Nevada Motorcycle Safety Coach. They say “those who can’t do it teach it”, but he claims to be “battle-tested”. Allan says: “In all of my years of teaching, I never forgot what it was like to relate to those who are learning for the first time”. He enjoys teaching, and loves to make it fun to learn.

Besides riding with Steve for many years she also had experiences riding her own dirt bike. After raising two children, a Physicist and future Pharmacist, Virginia became a nurse in 1997. She has worked in hospitals as LPN and later became an RN. She mostly enjoys home health care for elderly and pediatric patients. For ten years she has volunteered with the American Red Cross regularly. She became bored riding behind Steve on their Electra-glide so in 2001 she brought home her own Heritage Classic that she has customized just for her. Its name is White Shadow. Early riding began by taking a MSF Basic course and practicing around town. Then the advanced course, what a confidence builder. Practice and confidence has led to several touring rides through many states and memorable adventures. Virginia belongs to H.O.G. and has served as the Ladies of Harley officer in her local chapter. Since 2000 she also operates her leather sewing business, Grace Specialties Inc., and uses her creative talents to embellish, repair and manufacture leather garments for bikers. "I agree that the need to present Accident Scene Management training is more urgent now than ever.

CSmackMy 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.

Bruce HaroldsonI have been riding motorcycles for 10 years and I have been a road Captain with the St. Paul HOG chapter since 2005. I am currently the head road captain there. I was all set to start riding motorcycles as a teenager until my cousin had a very bad accident on his motorcycle. After that my parents said “no way”! I became interested in motorcycles later when my daughter wanted me to take the basic riding course with her. Since then I have gone on to take advanced rider courses. I became interested in ASM classes when my family all started riding and I wanted to be able to help out if an accident were to occur rather than just stand around being helpless. Since then I have taken the basic and advanced course along with the refresher course as I fell it is important to be up to date and prepared when group riding.

I was a carpenter for 30 plus years and I’ve always liked the outdoors including hunting and fishing. I used to snowmobile a lot including some racing in my teen years when bowling became a passion of mine as well.

Debbie ParinelloInstructor Trainer!

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 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 your 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 backwards, breaking one finger, one foot and a finger nail.

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 are 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 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 and 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.

Robert Barcomb

I started my fire service career in 1989 after growing up around the local fire department (born and raised in Southampton, MA). I have simultaneously served on as many as three Fire Departments that also provide ambulance service. I have worked with Paramedics as a basic EMT as well as, and mostly as an Intermediate. I worked my way from FF to training officer to Chief on the town’s call department. I have earned at least one certification a year throughout my career and continue at that pace. Currently I am a shift officer (Lt.) at the 104 FW Air National Guard Base in Westfield, MA; I started there in 1994. I have also served with both the Army Reserve and Air National Guard.

I started riding dirt bikes as a kid and transition to street bikes several years out of high school. My first was a 1985 Honda Interceptor. Then graduated to a H-D Sporty; now I ride a 2002 H-D Fatboy.

I think adding ASM instruction will be an interesting fulfilling new direction. You can contact me by filling out the form online.

nolan2Dan is a full time, full serve real estate broker which allows him to set his own schedule. Dan says “It allows me to be active in motorcycling and advocacy events” and is one of the original founders of the IL Chapter of the EMS Road Docs.  Dan has been riding since he was 12 and has seen his fair share of bumps and bruises. After a bad accident in 1995, Dan chose to get more life out of this time on earth and has discovered a huge need to be ready for anything the open road brings. Once the kids left and made him an empty nester, he decided to volunteer more time to the riding community and saw the need for people to step up and help each other when the worst happens. Dan has been all about ASM since he took the classes in 2010. His focus on safety focuses on BOTH sides of the handlebars and he is always looking for ways to take training to a more professional level. Dan’s personal goal is to have every person carry a first aid kit and know how to use it.

Lynda1I 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 Bob. 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.

Dan Pic

I have been riding motorcycles since 2007 and motorcycling continues to be a consuming passion of mine. I got involved with ASM training after experiencing two very close calls while on a group ride with friends in a remote area of Northern Michigan.  After those experiences, I started searching the Internet for training that was more advanced than basic 1st Aid but didn’t require formal medical training as a prerequisite. My research eventually led me to the Rescue Riders who then led me to ASM. I have completed Advanced ASM training certification and have been an active Rescue Rider for the last 3 years. I also have been serving as the Membership Officer of the Rescue Riders since 2013. When I’m not riding motorcycles or training to save lives I work as a High Voltage electrical/electronic engineer in the medical radiographic and CT imaging
industry. To contact me, fill out the form online.

Jean HerndonJean Herndon, NREMT-I - Lead Instructor
Jean was a motorcycle rider for many years before taking an extended break to raise her son. She received her endorsement when Maryland first required separate licensing; no written test was involved but a road test was required, in this case, in a December snow “event” in Silver Spring, Maryland. (Note: The examiner returned to the DMV building saying something like, "If you get back here in one piece, you'll pass.”). Jean got Phil interested in motorcycling when they had an opportunity to check out all of the 2003 models while volunteering with MDA on the H-D Centennial Tour. They liked the Road King best so, one week after her son stopped by their house on a new 2003 Sportster, she convinced Phil they should purchase a 2003 Black and Silver Road King Classic.

Jean has been a First Aid and Medical Emergency Response Team volunteer for over 25 years and an ASHI-Certified First Aid and CPR/AED Instructor for over six years. She volunteered as an ASM Course Assistant and then certified as an Assistant Instructor. In 2008, she completed the EMT-Intermediate program through North Metro, now Chattahoochee, Technical College and passed her National Boards to advance from an Assistant Instructor to Lead Instructor for ASM. Jean is licensed to practice in Georgia.

Jean has a bachelor's degree in Psychology with a minor in Education, serving her Senior Internship as an Ensign with the U.S. Public Health Service, CDC, TB Unit Training Department. Her career has spanned a wide range of professions, from Social Worker to Business School Instructor and later, from Data Processing Technical Writer/Editor to Computer Technician. Jean is now retired after 20 years with AT&T in Data Processing Centers, where she met and married Phil.

Phil Herndon – ASM Certified Instructor
Phil has been riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles since 2003 after completion of the MSF program. He has twice completed the Experienced Rider Course. He, as well as Jean, has been involved in ASM instruction since 2004 as a Course Assistant and Assistant Instructor. He says he “serves as ‘pack mule’ and technology expert for Jean in our safety-based training center, North Georgia Biker Safety.” Phil is an active member of the Cartersville Georgia HOG Chapter and Cherokee County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). He has been employed full time with AT&T for over 25 years; he is currently an IT Metrics Analyst. The Road King now shares space with Phil’s 2008 Road Glide and Jean’s 2008 Electra Glide Trike.

Greetings from Panama City Beach! I'm known by the nick name “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, loved one or even your own! Contact me to schedule a class or a presentation for your group.

Diane_MacLennon pic...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.

David cruzI 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.

TobinI have been involved in the medical field for 37 years. In that time I have been a field medic in the army, a helicopter medic and a nurse working for the Flight Surgeon's office.

Since getting out of the Army I have worked for a fire department in Colorado as a paramedic/firefighter and then as an RN usually working in the Emergency department.

Since moving to Florida I have been working in emergency medicine and as the emergency department educator. I recently accepted a position as a manager and have converted from emergency medicine to hospice care.

Throughout my career as a nurse and in the army I have frequently been the educator for whatever outfit I have been associated with. In New York I was a state certified EMS instructor and instituted the first AED program for the volunteers in the state. During this extensive medical career I have always been interested in riding motorcycles and have had a number of different bikes over the years. My favorite bike was a 1978 Kawasaki KZ-650, and when I was going to school in Florida to earn my RN degree I rode a gold wing every day. . My latest bike is a 2010 Bright Yellow Goldwing. I look forward to serving the biking community in Central Florida and hope to advance biking safety in our community.

Don EnningaI am the Emergency Medical Services Coordinator at Morgan Community College, 920 Barlow Road in Fort Morgan, CO.  My EMS career began in 1980 when, having taken an EMT class in Byers Colorado where I was a Vocational Agriculture Instructor, I moved to Wiggins, CO.  When it was known that I was an EMT Basic, I was asked to consider joining Morgan County Ambulance Service. My career there started in October of 1980 and continued until 2010 when I retired from active ambulance service work.

I teach the on- campus EMT Basic, IV, ITLS, CPR and First Aid courses for MCC and coordinate the  EMS course offerings off- campus in the 11,500 square mile service area for MCC.  This encompasses an area from Ft. Morgan east to Wray, south to Burlington, west through Limon to Bennett and back to Ft. Morgan. I also coordinate the on- campus courses such as EMT Intermediate, ACLS, PALS, and others.

I have been a member of ABATE of Colorado since 2003 and currently serve as Northeast Regional Coordinator and Assistant State Coordinator for ABATE of Colorado and a member of District One in northeast Colorado.  I have been an ASM lead instructor since 2008 and believe all motorcyclists should have this training to know how to properly handle an injured motorcyclist and the accident scene.

Halle FettyI'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 EMT's 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 Assistant Instructor was an obvious next step. I look forward to sharing my knowledge, training, and experience with you!

RoxannePicAs soon as she could touch the ground, at the age of 8 years old, Roxanne started riding her older brothers 125cc dirt bike. Currently she rides a custom 2008 Street Glide which is the love of her life after her family, (mostly). A well-respected critical care RN for many years, she found herself designated as the go to person in various medical situations. Following a few accidents involving her HOG chapter, it became apparent that more definitive scene management and treatment guidelines were needed for the safety of all the members. Roxanne says "Come take a ride to the beautiful Central California coastline, enjoy the sights and the benefit from our knowledge of this fabulous course. Or you can simply give us a call and we can come to you!!" To contact Roxanne fill out the form online.

Patricia “Chris” Miles, RN CNOR – Lead Instructor

Last modified on 2017-05-29 13:43:39 GMT. 0 comments. Top.

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 official licensed motorcyclists! 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 & change of riding under my belt (61,000 mi) and look forward to riding everyday. 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 @ the Women’s Conference in Keystone, CO. summer 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 !!! For a Class in the NorthWest Region, Contact Chris online.
