Chris was born and raised in southern Saskatchewan on the family farm. Growing up he participated in many sports and continues to this day. In 2000, Chris enrolled in the EMT course and upon completion worked in North Battleford, then Tisdale as a paramedic. He has served in emergency health care in several locations in the province, as well as being CAMATA trained (air medivac). Chris is currently working in the Tisdale health region.
Chris is currently trained as an ICP, as well as doing Covid-19 testing and vaccinating. In 2016, Chris was diagnosed with cumulative PTSD from his years of working in front line health care. With proper help and therapy, he is slowly healing and helping others along the way.
Chris volunteers with the Tisdale Trojans AAA hockey team as the medical trainer and is an avid four-season outdoorsman. He is married to Stephanie, an RN in the ER, and they have two children. They also have opened their home to billet two hockey players. Chris was thrilled when Jeff and Michelle approached him to be a part of the RVRR. He hopes he can share some of his knowledge and experience to benefit others.
