Erin O'Malley was familiar with pain. When she was sixteen she lost her brother George. It took a toll on her so when she turned eighteen she left Seattle. Fast forward eight years and she came back. She was ready to face her pain head-on. But first, she needed a job. Since she was a paramedic with the NHS before she returned to Seattle she decided to put her skills to work as a paramedic for the Seattle Fire Department.
