The End of an Era

My EMT-B license officially expired on my birthday, a few days ago. I have been a certified EMT-B since 2008. Some of the greatest moments in my life, my greatest accomplishments, and my greatest friends were made through EMS. It is a part of my life I will never forget and I will forever cherish all the memories.

I was a freshman in college when I became an EMT-B with people who became my best college and lifelong friends. I spent a summer with the Sylvania Township Fire Department and had one of the greatest summers of my life where I got to be on the front lines of emergency medicine and meet some awesome FF/paramedics who helped me get into medical school. I became chief of EMS at John Carroll. and worked with the future doctors of America saving the life of one college kid at a time. I went to Washington DC and Baltimore with my college EMS for the national conferences. And through all of that, I realized that I was meant to spend the rest of my life in medicine. So, here’s to an end of that era.

Some would say I was obsessed with life as an EMT during college, and looking back I definitely was. But it got me the friends I have, and it got me into medical school. And for that, I will never regret that decision!

Thank you to everyone who made it so special! Here are some of the best moments during these years 🙂
