About the founders
DO, MS, MPH
Internal Medicine Physician
Dr. Wagner is a physician with 19 years of experience in EMS, disaster medicine, emergency preparedness and training. Beginning as an EMT-B when she was 18 years old, she worked in rural EMS, eventually as an assistant training coordinator where she was responsible for developing new hire, field training and continuing education programs.
After almost a decade providing direct pre-hospital patient care, Dr. Wagner expanded the depth of her reach and became a Crisis and Continuity advisor for the MESH coalition in Indianapolis; an organization responsible for training healthcare providers to effectively respond to emergencies and remain viable through disaster recovery.
Dr. Wagner developed critical policies and training programs that helped ensure effective emergency preparedness. She led the collaboration of healthcare organizations, governmental agencies, and non-governmental organizations through facilitating interdisciplinary mass-casualty training programs all over the state of Indiana.
Now working as a full-time Internist, Dr. Wagner serves on her hospital’s emergency preparedness committee. In addition to her medical degree, she holds Masters degrees in both Biology and Public Health and uses her education to serve this passion.
After the Uvalde tragedy brought school safety to the forefront of our minds yet again, Dr. Wagner knew that she wanted to use her decades of experience and unique skills set to help make schools safer; Rescue in Color was born.
