Hi, I'm Paula

A little bit about me.

I am an aspiring technical and content writer living in Pittsbugh, PA.  I spent the past 28 years as a paramedic in a high-volume urban EMS system, so I have a considerable base of medical knowledge.  I also developed an ability to break down complicated concepts  so that they are more understandable to nonmedical personnel, patients and families, as well as to students when I was an EMT instructor.                   

I'm beginning a new career path, since in addition to gaining experience in EMS, I also gained a career-ending injury.  I have always wanted to write, and this is an opportunity to explore the field.   I was a copyeditor for my college newspapers, and worked my way to editor at one (Community College of Allegheny County) and assistant editor at the other (Geneva College). But, more about that in the resume.

Check out my resume.
