My Autobiography

I was born 1964 in Bowden,Georgia located in the North Western part of the state. I am the youngest of three girls, and have very deep family roots. My parents laid the cornerstone of my life,which I enjoy very much! I attended McEachern High School in Cobb County Georgia and was in the class of 1983. I married my high school sweetheart Adam Johnson in 1984, and we were off to where the Army sent us! Adam was in the Infantry and we lived in Ft. Knox,Ky. Moved to Schofield Barracks,Hawaii located on the island of Oahu in 1985. In October of 85, I had our first child David,and in 1987 we had our second child Rachel. In 1988 we were sent to Fort Bragg, North Carolina where my husband spent two years.This is when I became an Emergency Medical Technician, and my mother came to live with us. Adam was in the 3/505th PIR in the 82nd Airborne Division. He participated on the combat jump into the invasion of Panama, December 1989, where very soon after in 1990 we were stationed. Upon leaving Panama, we were sent to Robins AFB in Warner Robins, Georgia for Recruiting Duty. In 1993 We returned to Fort Bragg where my husband once again was in 3/505 PIR. During this time I began to teach for a community college my profession, which is Emergency Medical Technician. I taught many soldiers on Fort Bragg Combat Lifesaving to help them save a fellow soldiers life in battle. I loved my job and did it for three years. In 1997 I resumed my career on the streets working on an ambulance. I work for Cumberland County EMS which is owned by Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. It is a Level One Trauma Center as of 1998. I love my job as a Paramedic and take it very seriously. As of April 1998, I am facing the hardest thing in my life, and that is the passing of my Mother. She was an inspiration in mine and my family's lives. Facing life without her is causing me much reflection in my own life, and I think of her all the time. I love my family very much and would be lost without them. This Page is dedicated to my Mom!
