Currently looking for a full time position within the medical field, to get experience and knowledge, and to hopefully one day advance my career to been a full time paramedic

My goal is to first get experience and to end up as a Critical Care Paramedic.

Becoming a paramedic has always been a lifelong dream and passion. From the age of 17 in grade 12 choosing this as my career planning choice, to taking Occupational First Aid level 3 and failing that and never retaking it. I got really discouraged and for my first time quitting on somethign which is one of my regrets, to now ten years later taking an Emergency Medical Responder course with almost a vengeance and striving for my goal of wanting to become a paramedic. Along the way there have been so many road bloacks and bumps that there have been times where I wanted to quite again due to having to go through a couple remedials, not having my test delivered to the industry on time and making a trip for nothing, to not been able to find work, to having to take more courses to work north or anywhere for that matter. But through some very caring friends and soon to be wife in July 18 2014 I have been encouraged, blessed and pursued and my first goal of getting my licencse as an EMR. This has been one of my toughest exams and courses to take, with the persistence of not wanting to give up and with the support of family and friend's, as well as reminding myself that i am strong enough, smart enough, good enough to do this, you can accomplish anythign you put your mind to. Ive learned to never give up on something you want bad enough, that been said i am willing and expecting to relocate to fullfill my dream. This is my career and I will give it my all everyday, and will be willing and expecting to relocate to fullfill this dream
