Lauren is a paramedic from Mississippi and the epitome of over-achiever: she spent 33 days in New York City deployed by FEMA this past spring to help the ever-growing Covid case count. And while she was there she finished her second semester of medic school! Her first save was a Covid-positive case! While she has many stories to share, she admits it's something she never wants to do again -- and after hearing those stories we TOTALLY GET IT. With COVID on the rise again, we're glad we got some insight into the heavy lifters of this pandemic. Mask up and stay home so we can ease the burden of the first responders and lifesavers of the world!
