Following a move back to CT in pursuit of a better quality of life, Meg founded her own business, Ideas Incorporated, through which she provided operational support services to start-ups and small businesses. As life carried on, however, Meg’s thoughts began returning to her initial passion – medicine. In 2009, Meg spontaneously registered for an EMT class and has never looked back on the decision. She went on to earn an AEMT certificate in 2010, and later graduated valedictorian of the 2013 Yale New Haven Sponsor Hospital Paramedic Program.
