Many are drawn to the dynamic work environment and the opportunity to put medical expertise to use in challenging situations. In Rebekah’s case, tragedy and triumph has driven her new dream to become a paramedic in QLD. On Easter Friday in 2010, Rebekah was dropping her sister home after a family get-together. In a tragic turn of events, her sister (who had been drinking at the time) grabbed on to the back of the Ute and was pulled underneath the vehicle, sustaining serious injuries.
