AMT-WI NEW PRESIDENT
Nathan Krekula grew up in the small town of Cameron, WI, way up north where it is crazy cold. That being said after high school he joined the Army and moved south where the sun is hot spending most of my military career in the sweltering heat of North Carolina. He served in the Army as a Medical Technologist. Much of his time in the Army was on the 7th group forward surgical team. The forward surgical team was a new concept for the Army. There were times when test tubes in hand to be spun with a hand crank centrifuge.
Nathan enjoyed his time in the Army, and it gave a grand view of the world and a wide range of medical, leadership, motivation skills. The Army was a great choice for a Wisconsin farm kid to manage a way to pay for college. During his time in the Army he received his MLT degree George Washington University and the US Army AMEDD Center and School. Along the way he managed to work on a MBA in healthcare and a PhD (ABD) in public health epidemiology, and is currently working on a DBA in healthcare management. The Army taught Nathan to believe in life time education and to have a passion for learning new things.
For fun he likes to fish, spend time with his family and write children’s books. His first book is out and is called Rooney the Blue-Tailed Mouse. It can be bought on Apple, Nook and most of the larger book stores. The story is about learning to deal with scars and overcoming adversity. Nathan wrote the book to help soldiers coming back from war to have a way to talk to their children about scars and that being different is OK. He learned in the Army to fight for his soldiers by bringing them the best opportunities and training that he could. He believes in this core value of the military, and that we are here for the staff that we serve. He is looking forward to serving as the Wisconsin State President and the chance to bring his years of experience in the military and civilian lab science to grow and serve the state of WI. He is thankful for the chance to serve the great state of WI.
