Utilizing   Moustakas’  (1990)  heuristic   methodology,   she   explored   the   experience  of  stress  of  paramedic  supervisors  working  within  a  fire-­‐based  organization.    As  she   wrote,  “Despite   the   increasing   interest   in   understanding  the  effects   of   repeated   exposure   to   traumatic  events  among  emergency  responders,   those   who   supervise   them  have  received  little  attention  in  the  literature.”   Her  study  conveys  the  pain  and  suffering  such  supervisors  experience  as  a  matter  of  daily  work. As  a  partner   in   a   consultant   group,   her  focus  is  to  assist  organizations   to   operate   as   effectively   as   possible  by  integrating  the   organization’s   mission   and   goals   with  the  needs  of  the  employees.
