This week’s guest is Leslie Hall, the Executive Director of the Michigan Rural EMS Network (MiREMS). Leslie has been the Executive Director since the organization was created in 2011. Prior to that, she was the Executive Director of the Huron-Sanilac EMS Network. Leslie actively initiated the organizational structure and expansion of MiREMS from a two-county initiative to a statewide network.
“Leadership is really having a vision that you can clearly communicate and then having the passion to translate that vision into reality.”
Leslie led the organization as Project Director during the implementation of six separate multi-year federal grant programs. At the same time she created a foundation of connections and relationships throughout Michigan and across the country with EMS leaders, medical control authorities, hospital CEOs, legislators, healthcare professionals, and organizations which serve the unique healthcare needs of rural populations.
As Executive Director, Leslie has initiated and supported collaborative networking efforts of EMS services, EMS professionals, and stakeholders.
She graduated from Central Michigan University with Master of Applied Arts degree in Public Health Education.
