A Little Q&A with the Hero

What's your favorite part of the job?
Delivering babies! It’s the one run we get that is potentially the best day of someone’s life in a job where we usually only see the worst.

Your favorite place for pizza in Chicago?
Nonna Silvia’s (best margarita pizza!)

What's your favorite drink?
I love me a Mai Tai.

Ketchup on a hot dog?
Only if you’re 5 years old or younger.

Cubs or Sox?
My Grampa raised a Cub fan!

Cats or dogs?
I love both but I prefer the company of crows.

Do you have a favorite vacation spot?
Florida Keys.

If you weren't a firefighter/paramedic, what would you be doing?
I’d be a fortune teller on the beach in Florida with a side job as a social worker–I’m really good at reading people :)

Do you have tattoos-if yes, how many?
So far 7… one for every time my heart was broken.

Any words of wisdom?
One of the best things about getting older is not caring what other people think. When people tell me that I’m crazy, I respond by saying, “I never said I wasn’t”. Learn that lesson as fast as you can. You’ll be much happier in life.
