"I love my job because every day I'm on shift, it's something new. No call is alike and I enjoy the challenge. 

I don’t have any pets at home right now because my kids are very active in sports and we always have something going on. I did have a Boxer but we re-homed him with a family member who could give him the attention he deserved. He is a great dog, very protective without being aggressive. I loved his energy and his facial expressions. Since he’s with family, I still get the chance to see him and keep up with how he’s doing, which is important to me."
