2019 NV Star of Life
Rachelle Angel is an Advanced EMT who has served Community Ambulance since 2016. Before she began her career in mobile healthcare, she worked in a hospital for three years as a pharmacy technician. She was inspired to change careers when she watched a nurse she admired handle a code; she knew in that moment that she, too, wanted to care for patients.
Rachelle was interested in working in a fast-paced environment, so she chose to become a first responder. Following the nurse’s lead, she endeavors to care for each patient she encounters with skill, compassion, and empathy.
Rachelle is also community-minded. She volunteered with the Trauma Intervention Program from March to November 2018.
Outside of work, Rachelle enjoys spending time with her fiancée, Alexis, and her family. She adores her Australian Shepherd, Brooks. Rachelle also loves discovering new coffee houses, boxing, getting lost in a good mystery book, and traveling.
