MHS West – Moose Jaw Deputy Chief Angela Sereda has been recently recognized as a top-three finalist in the Kubota Community Hero contest.
Sereda is certainly well-deserving of the spot as she has a very large outreach within the community. She also co-founded the Tru-Unity Girls leadership Program six years ago, which continuously inspires and teaches young women.
“Just to really show that leadership happens at any age and that is something they can strive for,” says Sereda. “This program has really taken off. It develops their leadership skills. We really work to embrace their strengths and to really celebrate diversity with this group.”
She has also been working in paramedicine for almost 30 years and is the Chair of the Heartland Hospice in Moose Jaw.
Not long ago, she established the ‘Community Paramedic Connected-Care Model’ which provides medical support, treatment, and resources for local people who are dealing with mental health illness and substance abuse disorder. She is also creating and teaching curriculum-based basic medical skills to elementary and high school students in the city and the surrounding area.
