Paramedic Program Graduate

Fortis College in Smyrna

I wanted to be an EMT because I’m constantly looking to help people.  You know, it’s not about the money, it’s being able to help somebody that really needs it.

The instructors that I had, they are my mentors and I bring pretty much everything that they taught me is brought into the classroom because I never forgot what they taught me.  They simplified everything for me, they were constantly there for me, and that’s what I want to bring to the students.

The education that I got, it’s opened my eyes greatly to everything because a lot of people sit there and realize, oh well, we are just doing CPR; no, there’s a lot of reasons why you do CPR, there are a lot of reasons why you are given this medication.

I actually treat every patient as if it were my family member.  I don’t care they could be the most homeless person, or they could be the richest person; that right there is my family member or one of my best friends that is sick; let’s do whatever I can to help them.
