Carl Zenk

Carl Zenk, BS, FP-C, CCEMT-P
Carl was born and raised in Sheboygan, Wisconsin on the shore of Lake Michigan. His first experience in the EMS field was as a ski patroller at age 17, where he first began to realize what a pleasure it is to help others in need. He joined the army when he was 18, where he discovered he preferred being a medic to working in the combat arms fields.

He received his degree through the US Army at the University of Alabama’s Paramedic School, and also earned a BS in Public Safety Administration from Athens State University in Athens, Alabama. Before coming to LifeFlight of Maine, Carl worked for Huntsville MedFlight in Huntsville, Alabama for 12 years.

When he’s not flying, Carl spends his time enjoying the outdoors, skiing, hiking, snowmobiling and camping. When the harshest Maine weather prohibits outside activities, Carl can be found enjoying his other hobby, woodworking.

Jay Fonseca

Jay Fonseca, RN, CFRN
Flight nurse Jay Fonseca grew up in Enfield, CT and found his way to Maine when he attended college at the University of Maine at Orono. He stuck around the area after graduation, working as an emergency room nurse at St. Joseph Hospital, and in the intensive care and pediatric intensive care units at Eastern Maine Medical Center.

If you ask Jay why he decided to become a nurse, he answers, “I always liked the idea that I could be someone who intersects with people when they are at such a critical point in their lives.”

This desire to help others extends outside of his daily job as well. After the massive earthquake in Haiti, Jay volunteered with International Medical Corps and spent time in Port-au-Prince, tending to the hundreds of people injured in the catastrophe.

Jay took a position at LifeFlight in June 2011 and along with his regular clinical duties, he also serves on the public relations committee where he helps promote the mission of LifeFlight.

Jay lives with his wife in Bangor where he spends much of his leisure time training for and competing in triathlons. He completed his first full Ironman event (all 140.6 miles!) in July 2011.

Frank McClellan

Frank McClellan, FP-C, CCEMT-P, WEMT-P
Flight Paramedic Frank McClellan has spent most of his medical career in New Mexico, though growing up he has lived all over the world. Medical aviation seems to be in his blood, with a father who was an Air Force pilot and a mother who worked for the Red Cross. He went to school to become an auto mechanic, but after a stint volunteering in a crisis center in Tampa, Florida, he discovered he handled crisis situations well, so he decided to become a paramedic.

Frank has over 20 years of experience as an emergency medical provider. In New Mexico, he worked as an ambulance paramedic and firefighter paramedic before taking to the skies for a helicopter emergency medical service in Albuquerque. Eventually, he began looking for an opportunity at LifeFlight of Maine. With family ties in New England, and a love for the Maine outdoors, Lifeflight was the perfect fit.

If you ask Frank why he chooses to care for the most critically ill and injured patients in Maine, he’ll tell you, “I got lucky and found what I was put here on earth to do. I don’t know how else to explain it.”

At LifeFlight, Frank serves on the performance improvement and clinical practice committee, human patient simulator, and brings a special interest in safety management to the organization.

Frank’s personal interests include beekeeping, fly fishing, hiking, vert. skateboarding and above all, spending time with his wife and two children.

Jon Tierney

Jon Tierney, NR/W/CCEMT-P, FP-C
Jon began his EMS career in 1982, while in college, in an effort to be better prepared to help others in the backcountry as he intended to work as a backcountry ranger and mountain guide. After completing a basic EMT class, he worked a few summers as an EMT in his hometown of Claremont, NH. It was there that he first worked alongside paramedics who planted a seed for EMS work that would grow into a longstanding parallel career.

A graduate of the University of Maine, Jon has a degree in Recreation and Park Management with additional studies in Education. He helped establish and then directed the University of Maine outdoor program for seventeen years. He served locally on volunteer EMS squads and rescues teams through the 80s. In 1989, Jon completed the paramedic program at Kennebec Valley Technical College. As a paramedic, he worked as a volunteer and per diem in the Bangor area over the next decade. For several summers Jon worked as a backcountry climbing ranger and paramedic for the National Park Service where he was involved in many high mountain rescues in Rocky Mountain National Park and on Mount McKinley (Denali) in Alaska.

Jon is one of a handful of internationally licensed IFMGA mountain guides in the US and has guided over 70 expeditions to high altitude peaks around the world. He is the owner of Acadia Mountain Guides and a local outdoor retail store. He instructs wilderness medicine for Wilderness Medical Associates and enjoys teaching outdoor leaders and fellow emergency providers.

Jon first became involved with LifeFlight of Maine during its inception but stepped back to pursue other goals. A serious backcountry skiing accident in 2003 left him with a whole new perspective on medical care, so when the opportunity arose again in 2009 to join LifeFlight he jumped at the chance. At LifeFlight he serves on the Safety Committee and brings a unique perspective on care in difficult and remote locations.

Joshua Dickson

Joshua Dickson, FP-C, CCEMT-P, WEMT-P
Josh grew up in Oregon where family ties to the EMS community run deep. His father was the first paramedic in the state, and his family owned the ambulance and fixed wing service in his hometown of Astoria. His mother was a nurse in the emergency and intensive care departments, his uncle was the ambulance fleet mechanic and his aunt was a dispatcher. Josh’s own EMS career seemed inevitable.

He was raised at the ambulance station and remembers feeling proud of his father and how other people looked up to him. This left a strong impression on young Josh and when it came time to choose a career, it’s no surprise he decided to pursue a degree in paramedicine. After earning his license, Josh spent the next few years working with rescue teams on Mt. Hood in Oregon and as a ski patroller on Mt. Shasta in California. He became a flight paramedic, working for services in Mt. Shasta, as well as Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona. He moved to Maine and began working for LifeFlight in March 2007. Since 2015, Josh has served as LifeFlight's Fixed Wing Program Manager.

Not surprisingly, Josh enjoys spending his time off pursuing adventure-based activities like climbing, snowboarding, mountaineering and flying his own Piper Comanche. When he can’t get outside, he also enjoys making furniture.

Kimberly Savage

Missy got her start in the medical field as a nursing tech at Brewer Rehab. From the beginning, she knew that she wanted to further her education and work in the fast pace of a busy hospital.  After 12 years as a tech, and with the support of her husband, Missy decided to go back to school and earn her nursing degree. While in school, she worked at St. Joseph Hospital, Community Health and Counseling and Eastern Maine Medical Center. Upon her graduation in 2001, she accepted a position as an RN on the surgical floor at EMMC.

She soon moved to the adult and pediatric ICU, where she would watch the Lifeflight crew transport the most critical patients, and knew that was what she really wanted to do. The opportunity presented itself in 2008 and Missy accepted a flight nurse position in June of that year.

“It is a privilege to take care of these patients and their families during a very vulnerable time in their lives. I made a pact with myself after helping my in-laws deal with the death of a close family member that I was going to dedicate my life to emergency medicine, not only through solid training and experience, but also with kind words and a gentle smile.”
Missy lives in Winterport with her husband and two sons. She spends her time watching her son race motocross, riding her motorcycle, hunting, scrapbooking and hanging out with her grandson, 2-year-old Ian.

Lewiston

Pete Allen

Paramedic Pete Allen joined the LifeFlight team in 2009, after working for United Ambulance in Lewiston for several years. Originally from Sidney, he made the decision to pursue a career in emergency medicine when he was a teenager. A close family member was fatally injured in a motorcycle accident and the experience made Pete realize he wanted to be the person to help others in a time of crisis.

He graduated from Kennebec Valley Community College and started his EMS career at Delta Ambulance in Waterville and Augusta. He broadened his scope and also became a firefighter for Augusta and Gardiner. Although he enjoyed the fire service, he was always driven to provide the highest level of medical care possible, so he continued to hone his skills as a paramedic, with aspirations of working for LifeFlight one day.

Pete has two boys and enjoys going on family vacations and hanging out at the ice rink where his boys play hockey.
