Catherine Walker has lived in the Hampton Roads area since her junior year of high school. Her fascination with EMS began after her first observer shift with the Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad in 2015.
Catherine proceeded to acquire her EMT-B through the City’s BLS Academy and has since become a Paramedic to continue her career.
During her volunteerism, she has worked as a Nursing Care Partner at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital, as an Emergency Department Technician at Sentara Independence, and as an Instructional Assistant in Tidewater Community College’s EMS program. Catherine is optimistic that her career with Virginia Beach EMS will be long and full of character-building experiences!
