Jon has worked as an outdoor educator since 2005 teaching a range of courses with Landmark Learning and NOLS Wilderness Medicine. His student experience on a Wilderness First Responder course in 2003 served as the spark for a career in both outdoor education and medicine. Jon’s passion for emergency medicine and critical care led him to become a Wilderness EMT, a critical care Registered Nurse and ultimately a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). He currently practices anesthesia at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. He remains an educator at heart and loves to help others gain the skills, knowledge, and attitude needed to become competent wilderness medicine providers and anesthesia providers. He enjoys traveling, whitewater canoeing, trail running, snowboarding and ocean SUP/surfing.
