With 30+ years behind him, Brad began his Athletic Training career following graduation from Miami University. Entering a Sports Medicine practice with his physician father, the next ten years were spent assisting with practice growth and serving Springboro High School in Ohio. During those early years Brad was also pursuing another love of Fire/EMS. Joining Clearcreek Township Fire District as a firefighter, he soon obtained his EMT-A certification in 1983 and a Paramedic license in 1984. He rose to the position of Captain, Division of EMS, and held that until his retirement in 1993. Brad has always felt these two careers blended well and each supported the other with extensive training and strong knowledge bases.
