I’m Valerie. Full time Flight Paramedic. Wife. Mother. Yoga/Barre teacher. Friend. CEO and Founder of All EMS Women.
For years, ok decades, I was striving for a female mentor, or leader…someone I could talk to about the challenges I was experiencing as a Women in EMS. I never found that woman. It became my mission in 2021 to create that for others.
It all started with a private FaceBook group I named “All EMS Women”. Women in EMS supporting ALL Women in EMS. Not just ground medics supporting other ground medics….or flight supporting flight…or volunteers supporting volunteers. ALL Women. I want to support every last women that considers herself in EMS.
The group is all about Community | Well Being | Support.
I have 27 years in EMS. The last 26 have been with the same organization. And, the last 21 have been as a Critical Care Flight Paramedic. My husband is also a CC Flight Paramedic, and we work out of the same base. So, I really do live EMS. We have three teenagers and two dogs.
My career path as not been all rainbows and unicorns. It has been very hard. I have nearly quit multiple times. And, I’m not talking about the calls I’ve been on….I’m talking about the personal side of the job. I, as they say “hit rock bottom” and nearly lost my job because of it. I felt like I had zero support and no one who truly understood what I was going through. One day, when podcasts were the newest thing, I searched “life coach” and my life has not been the same since.
Because of the personal transformation I had with a Life Coach (who was NOT in EMS) I thought…“huh….our industry is pretty fu*ked up, I bet I could help people too!!” In 2018, I became a certified Life and Weight Loss Coach with the best school in the world (IMO). I have been helping Women in EMS ever since.
I work with women just like you. Busy. Stressed. Tired. Overwhelmed. Exhausted. Frustrated.
You deserve to live your BEST LIFE, RFN.
Setting boundaries, improving physical-emotional-mental Well Being, time management systems, and generating life/work balance is just a message (or two!) away.
