About Me:
I am a School-age Child Care Site Manager who just completed EMT-B training, with a passion for Emergency Services, especially interested in firefighting, firefighters, fire apparatus, fire prevention education, etc. I am a hopeless fire buff that cannot get it off of my brain. I am the Secretary for the Tacoma Pierce County Fire Buff Battalion (affiliated with the International Fire Buff Associates) where I am able to put my passion to work serving firefighters and first resonders. I grew up four houses down from a fire station and spent a lot of time there as a teenager. My little brother claims he became a firefighter 17 years ago because my passion for the fire service rubbed off on him. My grandfathers and several uncles are/were firefighters.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I have been a fire buff since the early 70's, and have always wanted to be a fire department paramedic. In August 2009 I discovered the local Fire Buff Battalion and joined. We provide canteen and rehab services for our local fire department. As a teenager I knew my passion was for the EMS/Fire Service. My life took a drastically different turn when I was younger and I did not enter the fire service. The Fire Buff Battalion is my way to live my dream although I just completed the EMT-B class and hope to go for a Paramedic Certification after that and perhaps go through the fire academy too. I have decided to pursue the dream I once wanted because I still do have a passion for it. My interest as a child sparked my brother's interest and he has been a firefighter for 17 years. Now I live vicariously through him. I am also a member of the International Association of Crusty Old Jakes.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I am a fire buff and am pursuing a career in Fire Service/EMS because of the compassion and dedication that men and women everywhere pour into their jobs to protect and care for their communities. The brother/sisterhood that they belong to is an amazing thing in and of itself. If I never live my dream to become a part of that I want to at least do what I can to serve these courageous and compassionate human beings that risk everything for the greater good of the people in the communities they serve.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Budget shortfalls
politicians who confuse voters as to what they are voting for or against in the Fire/EMS levies
