“Okay, tell me exactly what happened”
This is the statement we use at the start of every medical emergency call. We never know what will come next.....
I have been working as an emergency medical dispatcher for the past 15 years and though it is rewarding, the work can sometimes cause wounds. Over the years I have learned to emotionally distance myself from many of the calls I do in order to protect myself, however sometimes, with some calls, it just hurts.
I feel my most calm, most at peace, and most happy when creating with clay. It is a good resource to destress from my other work. My goal is to connect with others through the art I make and to tell my story. I want to create opportunity for people to feel safe to connect with their own expreiences.
