Megan Carey - EMS Instructor for CTTCI, Meg is a CT Licensed and Nationally Registered Paramedic as well as an EMS Instructor with over eight years of experience in EMS. Meg began her academic career at Fordham University fully intent on entering medical school. However, she quickly fell in love with Philosophy and French and graduated with a BA in both, garnering Phi Sigma Tau National Honor Society recognition for her academic performance in Philosophy along the way. After college, Meg spent nearly ten years working in the Fixed Income market in NYC during which time she earned (2) MBAs, Operations Management and Entrepreneurship, both from the Zicklin School of Business and again won Sigma Iota Epsilon National Honor Society recognition. Following a move to CT in pursuit of a better quality of life, Meg founded her own business, Ideas Incorporated, through which she provided operational support services to start-ups and small businesses. As life carried on, however, Meg’s thoughts began returning to her initial passion – medicine. In 2009, Meg spontaneously registered for an EMT class and has never looked back on the decision. She went on to earn an AEMT certificate in 2010, and later graduated valedictorian of the 2013 Yale New Haven Sponsor Hospital Paramedic Program. Meg recently spent more than four years working for a large commercial ambulance provider in CT.

Throughout the course, CTTCI will also have multiple other CT State Certified EMS Instructors provide both lectures and assistance with skills sessions.
