Bill and I have been married for thirty-three years this June. We have two sons, Michael, 32, (married to Janeva), and Andrew, 29, (married to Jaymee) We also have two grandsons, Thomas 8, Jacob 4, and a granddaughter, Claire due in August 2023. Bill has been a paramedic for over thirty-five years and a firefighter for twenty-three years. He has always been such a hard worker and a great partner to go through life with.

At sixteen, he became an EMT and volunteered at North Arlington EMS and at 18 he volunteered at Kearny EMS, both are in New Jersey. We met when he was eighteen and I was sixteen. He had such passion for the job. He was hired at University Hospital in Newark, NJ. He worked in many roles there: a dispatcher, an EMT, a paramedic, a supervisor, and then as their EMS Coordinator. Bill retired after twenty-seven years at University Hospital. He has also worked for the State of NJ EMS department but went back to University Hospital to finish his career there. During all these years he worked several other part-time jobs, such as a summer paramedic for Community Hospital, Nabisco Cookie factory in their medical office, instructor of CPR, ACLS, ALS, and adjunct facility at Atlantic-cape Community College paramedic program. In 2000, he was presented with the offer to go to the fire academy, and he took advantage of it.

Billy, I have you to thank for introducing me to the amazing team at UMDNJ. I would never had the opportunity to be a part of this community. I have used this experience to improve my life, and I owe it all to you. I wish you the best during your struggles, and I wish you the best in your (hopefully long) future.
