“Helping people. The wins! Making a difference at the worst of times,” are the phrases that come to mind when Cheryl recalls the things she enjoys most about her career.
When it comes to working at LifeNet in Texarkana, there are a few things she truly enjoys.
“We have good people, good hours, and good benefits. I love that we have a great support system of firefighters, police officers, and first responders. These guys make a difference,” she said.
For others considering a career in EMS, Cheryl offers this advice: “Research the ins and outs of the field. It’s not for everyone. Try to stay healthy, both emotionally and physically. Have a good support system in place for the rough times.”
