Alexa and Michelle met sometime in late November of 2017 at Aero Ambulance. Michelle had recently left a job in occupational medicine and somehow found her way into the paid EMS life. Alexa was in the midst of physician assistant school and returned to work for extra money on her Thanksgiving break. Alexa was assistant crew chief for Aero Ambulance and was less than thrilled to be paired with the "new guy" on an overnight shift. Needless to say, she wasn't warm and fuzzy towards Michelle at their first meeting, but it was love at first sight in Michelle's eyes. It didn't take long into their first shift together for Alexa to warm up, but she would not let the newbie drive or listen to country music... The grueling ten-hour shift was rather pleasant that night as it was the beginning of a wonderful relationship.
Alexa began taking extra overnight shifts even after she went back from Thanksgiving break because she wanted to spend more time with her newfound crush ;) Michelle didn't mind. Overnight shifts turned into Facebook messaging, then to texting, and eventually hanging out. They spent much time getting to know each other and spilling the tea of their life stories. Finally, Alexa built up the courage to ask Michelle on a formal date: December 17, 2017 at Pico Tavern. From that date forward, the two were in love.
