She can be found on B shift days riding at Glacier station with the career staff to keep her EMS skills sharpened. She is an excellent bridge between the career and volunteer staff and even co-wrote a section in our volunteer handbook titled “How to Ride Successfully”. Last summer she also became an EMT instructor. She does regular inventory checks on our ambulance at Auke Bay station.

She has a great smile, good sense of humor, and a willingness to bring cookies.
