“I plan to continue my EMS journey that I set out to reach, a Flight Medic. After learning what it takes to achieve my goal, I pulled together my support team. They have been nothing short of a blessing so far, so I know I will be able to count on them for the future. My biggest supporter, Tim Shelton, has been by my side since I started this journey and he pushes me daily to be the best I can be. My mom and dad, and my kiddos dad, Zach. Thank you! I couldn’t do what I do, without any of y’all! This is my support, my drive, my purpose, to make sure I serve our county residents the absolute BEST I can. There are still good people in the world, I am one of them.” -Jen
