Why you became a firefighter (paramedic, EMT, Etc.):   

I initially became a firefighter because it looked like a lot of fun.  Once I finished the fire academy and I learned how rewarding it was, I realized that I wanted to learn all aspects of the fire service.  I took every class and training opportunity and responded on as many calls that I could.  I am very passionate about serving the public as a firefighter and paramedic.


What do enjoy most about being a firefighter (paramedic, EMT, Etc.):

Being able to help someone in their time of need, making a positive difference in someone’s life and in their community. 


Other outside interests:

I love to be moving outside and I am usually training for some race.  My favorite activities are rowing, mountain biking, skate skiing, triathlons, snow boarding, backcountry skiing and camping.  I am also a city planner and the proud mother of a 6 year-old daughter.  I am currently learning to play the violin.
