we are Medical and Rescue Professionals and Specialists, Professors, Poets, Renaissance Warriors, Musicians, Farmers, Teachers, Artists, Open Minded Skeptics, and Lifelong Learners.
Lotus and Gabe share many passions including a zest for life along with a drive to make life as fun as possible. This is coupled with a certain pragmatic trait which allows them to make lemonade out of that half full glass of lemon juice, just add ginger and celery root.
We are medical professionals with our humble origins known by our ancesters as healers. We are humans who care. We are mothers + fathers, brothers + sisters, and sons + daughters. We are medics, nurses, doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and wilderness / disaster / ranger first responders. We are flight medics, corpsman, independent duty medics, firefighters, smokejumpers, and remote duty critical care paramedics. We are Guardians, Ropes Rescue Technicians, Rescue Rangers, Swiftwater Rescue Instructors, and Search And Rescue Professionals.
Whatever your need, wherever humans dare to explore now and in our future, we will do what you ask of us. There is no job too large and complex or straightforward. Failure is not an option
When Gabe was in his early twenties, he migrated between seasonal jobs in New England and the Pacific Northwest. As a professional ski patroller and whitewater kayak instructor and guide, along with regular work leading extended hiking and canoeing trips in Northern Appalachia with financially disadvantaged teens from Maine, Gabe met amazing folks from all walks of life. Larry in particular stood out amongst characters. In a good way. Larry was a giver, and boy howdy! did he give. Larry‘s passions were many and he wasn’t just a Jack of all trades, he was a master at most trades.
