AHA Training Site Coordinator
Hello everyone.  I'm Justin and I've been a part of UConn Rescue since 2015 just after it was founded.  I am responsible for the creation of the training program.  I have been working in EMS since I was 14 years old and I love teaching and working with our instructor team.  I now serve as the Training Site Coordinator from the American Heart Association, overseeing all training compliance at UConn Rescue.  I graduated from UConn in May of 2019 and I have been working since August 2019 as a Registered Nurse in the Medical ICU at Hartford Hospital.  I also graduated from Hartford Hospital's Paramedic Program and work as a Paramedic on a private 911 only ambulance.
