“Personally, I enjoy working at PAH ED because it is part of the community that I live in and I have always taken pride in that…I have the sense that I am investing back into the community that I spend a great deal of my time within", he added "and who can resist the reality of finishing a shift. Walking out the ED doors and strolling down to the beach (on a sunny or even a rainy day) – it’s beautiful… a great way to exhale and debrief after a long day at work!”
