Hi, I’m Robin and I’m a founding partner of Absolute Leadership, LLC, the parent company of our training programs, consulting services and speaking engagements. I began my public service career as a volunteer EMT just outside of Washington, DC in 1986. A year later, I entered law enforcement and my career was launched. Over the years, I’ve been a police academy instructor, supervisor, aviation commander and flight paramedic. In EMS I’ve served as a trainer, EMS Battalion Chief, conference speaker, and currently Assistant Chief of EMS Operations.
I’ve also been a victim of violence as a paramedic. So, in 2003, while working as a police lieutenant, I began research on violence in EMS and was stunned with two things; the number of assaults and the lack of training. I began training locally, working with fire-rescue departments in Northern Virginia. I trained police and fire departments, in full day joint sessions, complete with hands on, full blown scenarios. My efforts took off, and soon, I found myself in recruit schools, command staff training and speaking at conferences, asking the question, “Street Violence, How Safe Are You?”
I’ve spoken to thousands of providers, administrators and command officers across the national capitol region and Canada. I’m now bringing my message of safety to the world. It’s time we prepare our first responders with real world, easy to apply tactics that can help you to recognize and react to violent situations, hopefully, before they happen.
