Carl Zenk, BS, FP-C, CCEMT-P, 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.
