Morgan Scaggs was born in Maysville, Kentucky, but spent much of her childhood in southern Ohio before attending Ohio University. Her EMS career began in central Ohio before moving to South Carolina where she worked in the Myrtle Beach area for 12 years. Morgan came to KBEMS and the KYEMSC Program Administrator position in 2011, which brought her back home, closer to family and the area where she grew up. She currently lives in Lexington with her son, who provides personal inspiration for her work to improve emergency medical care for children throughout Kentucky.
Morgan holds a Bachelor's of Health Sciences, Clinical Leadership and Management, from the University of Kentucky and her work experience includes nearly 30 years in EMS with work in pre-hospital EMS, the fire service, hospital emergency department, critical-care transport, injury prevention programs, and EMS education. She has served as the Chair of the Pediatric Emergency Care Council for the National Association of State EMS Officials and represents KBEMS on many state and national committees and projects.
