Dispatch & Transit Supervisor
My name is Kathy, I have been married to my wonderful husband Dennis for 43 years. We have twin daughters, one who resides in Mesa, AZ and the other one in North Platte, NE. I have been with Med-Star Ambulance for 6 years, starting as a weekend dispatcher. After doing that job for a year I became full-time night dispatcher and then moved to the positions I now hold. Currently I am the dispatch supervisor and transit manager. I do a variety of jobs from coordinating transit and ambulance trips, overseeing the dispatchers and working closely with the hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities to ensure we facilitate their needs. No two days are ever alike and that is what I love about my job. I work with a diverse group of people from the Management Team, to the Paramedics and Emt's, dispatchers, and transit drivers. Each employee is unique in their personality, skills and abilities. The one thing they all have in common is caring and compassion for our patients and clients and that makes them the wonderful and unique people they are.
