Because I am able to utilize the skills I have learned in college.
I feel like my job matters.
Being able to help save the lives of others.
I truly go home feeling like I have made a difference and have an impact. This job also gives me a new appreciation for life, dealing with so many families who have lost a loved one.
I know I have helped others in every way that I can.
