"Thanks, that's my "little" girl, Zoe, with her head on big brother Harley. They sleep together in the same monster crate and are inseparable. He is 6 and she is 5. But don't let them fool you, she is the queen of this pack!…"

Leslie,

Hi, this is going to sound really weird because I don't know you but I was just searching on here for people that live in the same city I live in and you showed up. I am looking into pursuing a career in the firefighting service but have no experience.

Basically, I was wondering if I could just ask you some questions about being a firefighter, especially a female one and what it is like.

I'm sorry if this sounds too forward, but I am just looking for any resources that I can find that may help me reach my end goal.

Thank you,
Natalie
