We are a firm believer in living every day like it’s Taco Tuesday! So go ahead, have that extra bowl of queso. We won’t judge! (We’ve already had three bowls ourselves)

EMT Marcie Martin dropped by to invite you over for a cup coffee or a glass of tea. Don’t worry, she can cook too!

I’m a mother of three.  The oldest is 30 and the youngest is 19, just a few years in between.  I’ve been happily married for 25 years and regret none of it.  I was originally born in Louisville, in the 60’s.  Yes, I’m a 60’s baby!  I moved to Georgetown 30 years ago and here we are.  Living every day and loving my three beautiful grandchildren!

Sewing, but most definitely being with all of my grandchildren!

To be honest……..I wouldn’t change a single thing.  I love my job and this field!   I love my EMS family and the support. I love to help and make a difference in someone’s life!

9) What is one place in Scott County that you would take a visitor?

My kitchen table! (LOL)  I would love to just sit, get to know them and treat them like family over a cup of coffee or glass of tea

What time is it?! Sadly……not summertime. Name that musical!? Anyone?! ………anyone? No……okay then. Well since we are off to that start….. We will tell you what time it is! #MedicMonday time! We will hold for applause……..

Paramedic Arianna Cozadd wanted to swing by to show you her dogs, sadly her phone died and we can’t find the pictures. So she will introduce herself instead!

My name is Arianna. I have been working in the FIRE/EMS service since the end of 2017. I started as a Volunteer and have since progressed into a Career service member. I find this career to be both rewarding and challenging. I would highly recommend pursuing it as a career for anyone who is interested! I recently got married, in September of 2020, to my husband Gabe. We have two small children together, a 4 year old boy named Hendrix, and our 2 year old daughter, Spencer.

1) Where are you originally from?

I am actually from Northern Kentucky, around the Independence area to be more exact.

2) What are your hobbies, interests, etc?

My off days are used to spend time with my family, work out and we also have a RZR we love to take out whenever we get the chance. I also love horseback riding and spending time with our pets. I own two horses and four dogs, yes I said FOUR dogs. No regrets!

3) How did you become interested/get started in EMS?

A tornado went through a small town just down the street from where I grew up, and I wanted to be able to help the victims. This is originally what sparked my interest. It wasn’t until a few years later after witnessing a tragic incident involving a pediatric patient that actually pushed me to pursue my dreams.

4) What brought you to Georgetown?

Georgetown/Scott County EMS is a well known department for being progressive in their protocols for providing Patient care. I wanted to be able to provide the most care possible to maximize the benefit to my patients.

5) What is your position at GSCEMS?

I am now a Part Time Paramedic w/ GSCEMS after stepping down from my full time position there in November of 2020.

6) Where did you go to Paramedic/EMT school?

I achieved my Paramedic education through Gateway Community and Technical College in Northern KY along with an AAS degree in Science.

7) What is your favorite thing about EMS/your job?

It is hard to pick just one, but I would have to say being able to make a difference in people’s lives, whether that difference be significant or minor.

8) What is one thing currently that you would change about EMS as a whole?

I think one of the most important things that need to be addressed in the EMS community is PTSD. We need to do more to make sure they are taking care of themselves mentally, and getting the help that they need. The suicide rate among first responders is astonishingly high. The comradery in this service is like no other that I’ve seen, so I’m not sure why we fall so short on recognizing when our brothers/sisters need help.

9) What is one place in Scott County that you would take a visitor?

I would take my visitor to The Wooden Straw Nutrition, it is definitely one of my favorites places to visit when I’m in Georgetown. Their shakes just make your day 1000% times better!

Think we can get The Bangles to rewrite the song to say “It’s just another #MedicMonday”? Although…….just another manic Monday is quite accurate for today. Thankfully we have coffee.

Paramedic Natalie Guerra wanted to drop by and say “Hey girl, hey!”

1) Where are you originally from?

Sheffield, England UK

2) What are your hobbies, interests, etc?

3) How did you become interested/get started in EMS?

A friend recommended I try EMS, and I am so glad I did.

4) What brought you to Georgetown?

Wanting to sharpen my skills and focus on EMS.

5) What is your position at GSCEMS?

Paramedic on 2nd platoon

6) What is your favorite thing about EMS/your job?

Of course, saving lives… being there to help make a difference in someone’s life when they need it most if all.

7) What is one thing currently that you would change about EMS as a whole?

To educate the general public on what it is we do exactly.  That we are not just ambulance drivers.
