I'm Julie. I'm 20 years old. I am currently in school to become a paramedic, then will go through nursing school. I work 2 jobs. I am a Firefighter/EMT-B for an amazing fire department and a transport communication specialist for a childrens hospital and I love both jobs very much. I am usually the positive, cheery, upbeat person that makes everyone sick! But I love it!
