Congratulations Jennifer!

The Wisconsin EMS Association is proud to announce that Board Advocacy Chair, Jennifer Smith has been selected as the NAEMT Advocate of the Year and was present to represent WEMSA at the annual NAEMT EMS Day on the Hill in Washington, DC April 10-12, 2018.

Jennifer Smith is the Education Coordinator for Regions Hospital Emergency Medical Services in St. Paul Minnesota.  Here she has responsibility for the production and delivery of high-quality EMS continuing education.  In the classroom, she is known for making learning interesting and having a knack for helping students make connections which lead to long-term retention.  She also teaches at both of her local technical colleges; WITC and CVTC. She currently works clinically at St. Croix EMS in Hudson, Wisconsin as an AEMT.

She is active in advocating for EMS in the legislative arena.  Over the past years, she has attended the Wisconsin EMS Board Meetings and was recently appointed to the Training and Education Sub Committee.  A particular concern for Jennifer is addressing the shortages faced by rural EMS ambulance services in the area of staffing and accessing quality education. 

She currently serves as Regional Faculty and on the Emergency Cardiovascular Care Committee for the American Heart Association.  Her interest in Pre Hospital resuscitation began while working on the ResQ CPR study from 2006-2009.  While attending the quarterly Technical College EMS Advisory Board meetings, she is serving her second term as secretary.  Jennifer lives in Hudson, Wisconsin.
