Lane went from teaching in a high school art room sixteen years ago to becoming a full-time professional firefighter paramedic. When she was looking for a new career path she was told by a career firefighter, a friend, that firefighting is the greatest profession. She trusted in that, and now is in her third year as a career firefight er at Rock Community Fire Protection District located in Jefferson County, Missouri. Although Lane traded in her teacher’s ID for bunker pants and a leather helmet, she hasn’t lost her desire to create. As a female in a very male dominated field she felt a calling to share her journey and experience in the fire service. Lane has big plans for Indie to continue to show you life in the fire service, and to show young girls and women that they can do it.
Unsure of what she wants to be when she grows up, Indie embarks on an interesting test of skill, ability, and grit. Surrounded by supportive friends and family, Indie overcomes self-doubt and builds the confidence to follow her dreams. Follow Indie as she proves to herself that she can do it!
