  2. It's a dramatic story, and I hope your wife was ok, but it didn't really tell my WHY you wanted to become a PA. what made you go from working as an emt to wanting to become a pa, what have you experienced as an emt working with the patients and doctors/pas/nps that got you interested in the PA career instead of the others.
