I have worked in the Telecommunications Industry for over 30 years. I did not realize I was l entering a lifetime calling when I was offered an exciting opportunity with the startup, XYpoint. XYpoint’s goal, route mobile 9-1-1 calls to the appropriate PSAP based on location information, had never been achieved. XYpoint’s success transformed 9-1-1.
This was the beginning of my interest and curiosity with 9-1-1. 20 years later, XYpoint is now Comtech Telecommunications Corp. and our 9-1-1 team continues to improve how individuals request emergency help. My appreciation of the 9-1-1 industry has expanded as I have become aware of the countless individuals in and across many areas of this Public Safety service who continue to provide much needed expertise and diligence. So many people work hard to deliver the most important call many of us ever make.
My deep experience with Comtech’s 9-1-1 products and my passion about 9-1-1 services makes me want to contribute to Washington APCO NENA as the Commercial Representative position. I look forward to serving Public Safety in this new way.
