Paramedic + Flight Medic

"I work full time as a paramedic in an ambulance for a busy metro service and part time flying high in a helicopter as a flight paramedic."

WHAT SHE DOES FOR LOVE: "A little over a year ago I started doing Crossfit.  I love the strength I have gained and the confidence that has followed! I have always been physically active and very competitive and this has been a great outlet for both."

HER STYLE + BEAUTY: "For both of my jobs I am required to wear a uniform.  Unfortunately, it's the same uniform for men and women... Really flattering right....? So I have to have my 'girly' by wearing my hair down and curly!"

HER 2015 GOAL: "I want to continue to work towards being the best version of me that I can be! I hope to find something to learn from everyday and something to smile about!"

A LADY SHE ADMIRES: "The woman I admire most is my Mom. She has the kindest heart of anyone I've ever met. She always puts the people she cares about first, almost to a fault. When she knows I've been really busy with work, she will surprise me by going over to my house and doing the dishes or taking out the garbage - little things to help me out.  She's kind of amazing like that."
