Emergency Medical Technician and Firefighter RN Southwest Health Center

Rocky put her nursing degree to work in the emergency room at Southwest Health Center in Platteville. Passionate about helping others, she also serves her community as an Emergency Medical Services provider and a firefighter.

"If you enjoy helping people in your community, have some spare time and want to learn new skills, consider joining your local team of fire and EMS volunteers," she suggests. "Being an emergency responder is very rewarding when people can go home to their family because of something we did to help."
