FF 1, FF2
First Aid/CPR Defib instructor
I am 40 yrs old and have 2 children. My daughter is 20 and off at college and my little guy is 9. My hubby is a law enforcement officer, currently working as detective for the Special Investigations Bureau.
I grew up in Peterborough Ontario Canada then moved to the USA in 1999 where I began my career in EMS. I've never looked back and have enjoyed it immensely.
Emergency services have always been a huge part of my life. I grew up in a family full of cops. Originally I had thought I would follow in my fathers foot steps and be a cop. However, I quickly realized that policing wasn't for me. I just didn't seem to have the "cop attitude"...So emergency medicine is where I decided I needed to be. I absolutely LOVE it.....I've always felt a strong need and desire to help people and what better way to do it then in EMS.
I see you are from Peterborough. While I'm from New York, I grew up (mostly) in Mississauga. I live in South Carolina now. I still have family in Brampton, Ottawa, and Ganonoque. Nice to see you on FFN. Sorry to hear about needing surgery. Best wishes on your speedy recovery.
