" I spent most of my childhood growing up right here in Fair Lawn. As a child, I remember accompanying my mother during mission trips where we helped those in need with no expectation of something in return. There is something so rewarding about giving freely and being able to make a difference in someone’s life, no matter how insignificant it may seem. “It’s in the little details” – that’s what I always say. Whether it may be, bringing someone a warm blanket to keep them comfortable or picking up on something to keep them alive, it is details like these
that fill me with so much joy and that push me to continue to help others. When COVID struck, resources were scarce but I knew that I had something to give – I had time and as an emergency room nurse, I also had a lot of experience with it. I drove past that “Volunteers Needed” sign on Berdan and Plaza every day on my way to work until one day, I drove right to the Fair Lawn Ambulance Corps building and put my application in. More than a year later, I don’t think I could have ever imagined my life being what it is today and I have a lot of that to thank FLVAC for. I have made and continue to make an impact in my community and in return it has made me a better person for it. But most of all, I have gained a new family that I am incredibly thankful for.
