Avera Careflight

911MK – Careflight helicopter

Last night was my last shift as an Avera Careflight paramedic. Over the past 3.5 and a half years my job has brought me all over the United States and allowed me to gain experience in so many different ways. I have had the opportunity to be a part of the miracle of birth and the tragedy of death. I have had moments of ecstasy and times I have questioned if the job was really worth it. I have strengthened old friendships and found new ones. I have learned about a wide variety of topics, from aircrafts to x-rays!

Certified Flight Paramedic

My Careflight mission statement reads: I desire to be a medic who is compassionate and competent, making a difference in the lives of my patients, patients’ families and coworkers.

I hope I was able to make a difference during my time as a flight medic. As the sun sets on this part of my journey, I know I will never be the same because of my time with Careflight.
