Raised in an Appalachian region of southeast Ohio, Todd experienced multiple barriers to higher education that are common in rural environments. Fortunately, Todd’s supportive parents helped navigate these challenges so he could pursue his passion for emergency services and emergency transport, and critical care nursing. Todd continues his parents’ legacy of unwavering support and guidance by mentoring nurses and student nurses throughout the publication process. Todd also continues to clinically mentor student nurses and nurse practitioners as well as paramedics and firefighters, which are some of his most rewarding professional experiences.
