“My grandfather and my father were volunteer firefighters because they wanted to serve this beautiful community. I grew up with the same desire to serve my community and followed in their footsteps, becoming a career firefighter/ EMT/CPR Instructor. Over time I learned that while walking into a burning building is exciting, I was not able to personally connect with the people I was trying to help. My desire has always been to help people in a time of need. Becoming a Funeral Director has given me that opportunity.”
