Trailblazer: Madeleine Lamphier
Firefighter / Officer / Athlete / Mother
I'm a career firefighter. I came to the job 14 years ago, knowing I wanted an intense physical career, the opportunity to help people, and to work in an environment which relied on camaraderie and provided lots of laughs. It wasn't until I met a female firefighter that it occurred to me it was the perfect fit.
Most meaningful achievement: Although I am an acting officer at the Firehall, I'd say my greatest achievement is raising two happy, kind, confident girls.
Lessons learned: Take the extra time to figure out the best way. I may not always be the biggest or strongest on my crew, but by problem-solving first, I'll save time not having to do the job twice.
Best advice: Work hard and be nice to people.
The future is: unknown! Exciting, no?
