Paul Geslao, RN
Like many transplants, Paul has wandered the U.S looking for that special place; found it he has, in mountains of Southern Colorado. An avid outdoors-man he enjoys hiking, backpacking and climbing. He always believed mountain biking was breaking some special purest backpacking rules until the day he jumped on a full suspension trail bike and replaced the slow walk back to the truck with an aggressive shred downhill. Favorite places to ride include Durango, Steamboat, Moab and Park City. While never thinking he would ever get involved in a “race team” Paulʼs dedication to clinical and outdoor medicine makes putting on a TeamEMS jersey a perfect fit. “I think this is the perfect opportunity to grow personally, act professionally and give back to the mountain sports community from which I draw so much personal inspiration”. Professionally, Paul is a Registered Nurse that has held several positions clinically and has found his home in the Emergency Department. Rounding out the last 18 years, he began his medical training in the Army certifying as a Combat Lifesaver. After discharge he became EMT-I certified, took a Wilderness First Responder class and subsequently did the WEMT upgrade working for an urban and rural ambulance service. Wanting more clinical exposure he decided to attend nursing school. When he can attend classes, he is a Advanced Wilderness Life Support Instructor and really enjoys his time sharing medical knowledge with other outdoor minded medical professionals.
