Check out the latest episode of Express Employment Professionals’ On the Job podcast!
How many jobs are there where you need to know and trust the person next to you because there might be a time where your fate is in their hands and vice-versa? Meet Anna Nadler, a 27-year-old civil engineer and firefighter from Massachusetts. Small in stature and sweet as can be, Anna got addicted to “smoke-eating” a few years back and is now one of the best firefighters on the force. By day, Anna runs construction and engineering crews building bridges and roads. At night, she is on call as a firefighter. Anna is a shining example of a young woman getting involved in a job that gives back to her community. She is also an example of a woman excelling in what is a traditionally “macho” work environment. She has many stories of life-threatening situations on the job and showing heroism in the face of danger that only made her want to do it more.
