Hi future firefighters, My name is Katelyn Williams. I am a wife, mom, and Registered Nurse. I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Nursing at Sacramento State, which is also where I met Markell. I began my career as a Burn ICU nurse in California and have continued that here in Arizona as well. My role as a Registered Nurse has allowed me to live out my passion of helping others as well as making a positive impact during what could very well be the lowest point in someone's life. I am also very passionate about fitness, nutrition, and health in general. I have worked both as a group fitness instructor and a fitness coach. My role in Firefighter Ambitions mainly focuses on the website development, finances, general organization, as well as keeping Markell on track (as many wives do for their husbands :)) We hope our hard work can teach you how to become a firefighter and help you and your family reach your goals of becoming a firefighter. Like we always say, we would love to hear from you. If you have any questions or comments please reach out!
Hey future firefighters, my name is Markell Williams. I am first and foremost a husband and father of one as well as a former firefighter in Arizona. My wife Katelyn and I dedicated our lives to helping people. We both chose careers (firefighter and nursing) that would allow us to do exactly that. I graduated with a Bachelors in Sociology from Sacramento State where I also participated as a student athlete for the football team. Towards the end of my time in college, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to find a career where I could continue this team mentality. Becoming a firefighter became my goal. I started by taking an EMT course and then moved to Arizona where I participated in the Fire Cadet Program, volunteered my time at union and charity events, completed ride alongs, and networked as much as possible. It was such a blessing as well as rewarding to see all of work I put in pay off. I also participated as a fire cadet mentor for the past 3.5 years. I have over ten years of personal training and coaching experience that I currently engage in. I have had many people step into my life that helped get me to where I am at today. It is because of those experiences that I have dedicated my life to giving back and bettering somebody else's life, and that's why we have developed this guide to help you reach your goals and dreams of becoming a firefighter.
