Currently work full-time as a vascular surgical assist and office manager for general/vascular surgeon in Joliet. I attend both Joliet Junior and Prairie State for Fire 2 and applied for Medic school at Ingalls for fall. Getting my rescue diving cert over the summer and possibly going to either Kuwait or Iraq in an EMT capacity under contract for short term civilian responder.

Relationship Status:
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
My passion to help others. Giving all of myself and more to those who cannot help themselves. Compassion where there is little, to try to save a life where life looks down upon hold the hand of one alone, agonal breaths, to go to rest with someone by their side, to mourn for them when there is no one else to mourn for them. To help each person with every ounce of my being, to try to just give one more day.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I have dedicated my entire life to serving/taking care of others.
