One Paragraph Personal Bio

I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, and went to college in New Orleans, Louisiana. Since graduation, I have been in Sarasota, Florida, and became a Firefighter/EMT for Sarasota County Fire Department in 2021. I recently got married in February to my husband, Luis, who is also a Firefighter/EMT for East Manatee Fire Rescue. Fun fact: Luis and I met while playing beach volleyball. Indoor volleyball is my first love but I very much enjoy beach volleyball tournaments on the weekends. In my free time, I love to go boating and work on our new home. I have a French Bulldog named Ellie Mae who is my favorite girl in the world.
