Angela “Angie” Jarrett, NRP, began her career in EMS as an EMT in 2001, joining Gold Cross in 2007.
Angie works collaboratively and fosters an inclusive environment. Angie says she finds her role as a leader and mentor very rewarding. “It is extremely gratifying to pass along my knowledge and experiences to others and to see it reflected in the patient care they provide,” Angie said. In her estimation, Angie believes that leadership should not be about one’s own accomplishments; rather it should be “the ability to contribute to the success of others.”
Throughout her career, Angie has demonstrated initiative and is respected as someone who mentors and leads by example in providing the best care to every patient, every day.
A colleague wrote, “Angie is always willing to listen and help crew members through any situation they are facing. Thanks to her leadership, when challenges have arisen between crew members, Angie is able to bring calm to the situation. Angie is always mindful of the differences in people and their views of a given situation.”
Angie’s advice for the next generation of Paramedics coming into the workforce is, “I would tell them to build one another up, do your best every day, and choose to be part of the solution.”
Gold Cross, the Paramedic service of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is proud to be represented by Angie Jarrett, a Paramedic and Assistant Operations Supervisor, as a 2017 Star of Life.
