Stephanie Berntsen (she/her/hers) is a former paramedic and now a full-time student studying political science (yes, she knows you don't want to discuss politics). Diagnosed with PTSD in 2016, Stephanie was forced to leave EMS and almost became a recluse.
In 2018 she was matched with a service dog, a very good boy, and he has single-handedly (pawdedly?) changed her life. Stephanie is now able to return to her first love, hiking, when she's not writing papers about very depressing things.
