Acadian Air Med has promoted Sherri Wells to its Operations Manager position. She was most recently the division’s operations supervisor.

As the Operations Manager, Wells will work closely with Vice President of Air Services Michael Sonnier and Program Director Marc Creswell. She is responsible for coordinating the efforts of the command team of Acadian Air Med, Air Med Operational Control, and Metro Aviation operations and maintenance to ensure that Air Med is ready to respond when needed. She also coordinates all accreditation activities, customer relations and tactical growth of the division. 

Wells joined Acadian Ambulance in 1997 as an EMT in Hammond, LA. She became a paramedic in 2001 and joined Acadian Air Med in 2005. She has been involved in many aspects of the company, including ground operations, education, public relations and air operations. 

“Sherri is an integral asset to our Air Med operations. She has a deep understanding of the program and is committed to connecting with our crew members and staff who are located statewide. I look forward to seeing the program grow under her leadership,” said Michael Sonnier.

Wells attended LSU-Eunice and received her Associate Degree in Emergency Medical Services with a Certificate of Technical Studies in Safety. She has been recognized as Acadian Air Med’s Paramedic of the Year in 2013 and 2018.

Acadian Air Med was founded in 1981 and currently operates a fleet of 12 medically configured helicopters and four fixed-wing aircraft from bases strategically located throughout Louisiana. Air Med’s Rotor Wing Operations are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems, the gold standard for air ambulance services in the United States.
