How did you come to be in EMS?

I found myself searching for a career in the healthcare field and discovered a local EMT training program. I didn’t know much about EMS at the time I applied. As I got deeper into it, I became more and more interested.  I enrolled in the Paramedic program to further my career and continue my education.

What do you love about working in EMS?

What I love about working in EMS is the thrill and the excitement—the whole experience. I love the fact that I can tell people outside of the profession that I’m a Paramedic.

Do you have any advice for someone considering becoming an EMT or Paramedic?

Treat each and every patient as if they were your family member.

Anything else you’d like to say?

EMS is a fun and challenging career. It has its moments but every call makes you greater. My primary goal is to provide patients with excellent pre-hospital care.
