  • EMS, medics always seemed like second family

    In 1976, my mother married my stepfather, Robert Johnson, who was an EMT and shift supervisor with Lancaster County EMS. During the next several years, I read all of his EMT and medical books, which gave me my initial interest in EMS.

  • Always wanted to be street medic

    I initially received my training as an EMT through the military while deployed during Desert Storm as a hospital corpsman in the Navy in 1991. I also volunteered with Bethune Rescue Squad. When Springs Industries plant in Kershaw began its reduction in the workforce, I sought and found full-time employment with Kershaw County EMS as an EMT. I advanced to the intermediate level and eventually became a paramedic/supervisor.

  • EMS has made me a better medic, person

    I became an EMT so that I could pay it forward. When I was 21, I had two small children and was a widow, due to a tragic accident. I don’t  remember a lot about the day my husband was killed, but the one thing that I do remember was an EMT held my hand, hugged my neck and stayed with me until my  family got to hospital. The very same EMT came to the funeral to pay respect.
    Three years later my, mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer and died. Once again, I had another experience with another EMT.

  • Mom wanted to set example for her sons

    In the fall of 2006, I was the stay-at-home mother of two boys – Matt, 12, and Mason, 4. With my youngest child starting kindergarten the following year, I felt it was time for me to think about going back to work. Most of my work experience was in retail, and frankly, I had no desire to return to it. This was a new opportunity to me, and I wanted a career – not just a job, but a career that would set a good example for my boys and make them proud of their mom.
