58 OCTOBER 2018 | EMSWORLD.com S P O T L I G H T: Angela Hamilton, Paramedic, Wichita, Kan. 2018 NAEMT/Nasco Paramedic of the Year Sponsored by Nasco Angela Hamilton has been with Sedgwick County EMS in Wichita, Kan., for 19 years. She began her career as a volunteer EMT and moved to full time in 2001 after earning her associate degree and paramedic certification. As a team leader, Hamilton motivated EMS crew members to become better clinicians and served as a preceptor for many paramedic students. "There are few providers in our service who demonstrate the values of ser- vant leadership as well as she does," says Col. Paul Misasi, paramedic and quality manager for SCEMS. Hamilton was nominated by Rosa Spainhour, director of Kiowa County EMS, and supported by Joseph House, director of the Kansas Board of EMS, after receiving the Kansas EMS Association 2017 Paramedic of the Year Award. Hamilton is a patient care advocate and supports EMS education. She embraces a "just culture" management philosophy to facilitate personal safety among coworkers and identify areas for improve- ment. She seeks opportunities that will challenge her to be a better paramedic and leader. In October 2017 Hamilton was promoted to QA education coordinator at SCEMS, where she continues to foster leadership throughout the organization. Hamilton cares deeply about the service SCEMS provides to the community, the profession and professionalism of EMS, and the people with whom she works. EXEMPLARY SERVICE NAEMT and EMS World are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2018 National EMS Awards of Excellence.
