Fire Company: Pine Rock Company No. 4

Rank: Firefighter

Occupation: Veterinary appointment and surgical technician

Why did you choose to become a volunteer firefighter in Shelton?: I chose to be a volunteer firefighter because Shelton has given me many nights of fun, friendships and memories. I wanted to give back and keep the town safe, so why not be a firefighter.

Who or what has been the greatest influence in your life?: My greatest influence is my grandparents. My grandpa was a volunteer firefighter in Iowa. They taught me to enjoy life, slow down and that a York peppermint patty is the perfect treat after a long day in the summer.

What is one of your proudest accomplishments?: My proudest accomplishment is obtaining my college degree, getting my Firefighter 1 certification, and becoming a wife.
