Amy R. is a paramedicine student in the Glendale Community College Paramedic Program who comes from a strong background rooted in medicine and learning. “My mother is a nurse practitioner and I grew up around the hospital and the amazing people that work there,“ she said. As a senior in high school she became an EMT at Glendale Community College and has not looked back since.
Amy found her true calling in pre-hospital emergency care and has worked for four years as an EMT before going to paramedic school where she has worked hard to support herself, partner and animals. “The AMR Foundation for Research and Education Scholarship has made it possible for me to pursue my dreams and maintain high academic standing in the program,” she said.
