Jessica Edwards

Jessica Edwards is an EMT who goes above and beyond to connect with her patients and co-workers. She has become known as “the patient whisperer” to her local high-need school, displaying her ability to help the kids while maintaining professionalism.

When she became a paramedic, she also became an ALS provider and CPR/Education coordinator. She is a certified state EMS instructor and teaches two local EMT classes, as well as multiple CPR and first aid lessons a month. Her first major event was at an elementary school science fair. Taking initiative, she secured a bovine heart and developed a unique learning station while also involving other staff members in doing a community CPR demonstration. It was a hit! Over 500 children passed through that day and the kids loved it.

Jessica was nominated for the Childress Scholarship to EMS World and offered our scholarship to the PTS Annual Meeting.
