White has worked as a Cannon Beach Life Guard for the past 4 years, with 2 years of past experience with Seaside LIfeguards. She also has a couple years of experience as a Wildland Firefighter for Inbound, LLC.
She attended Clatsop Community College for her Associate degree in Fire Science.
White missed the comradery of the Marine Corps and the sense of being a part of something bigger, so shortly after her return, she joined the department. She believes that in a sense the military and the fire department aren't too different, they're both very challenging and the skills learned help people succeed in life.
She is a team member on the water rescue team and has now been with the department for four years. Although there is no official certification, White is a chainsaw specialist. She is often one of the firefighters with the most response hours as well.
Her favorite movie is Batman & Robin and her favorite book is Armor by John Steakley. If she can find a minute to herself, White spends it at the gym as she would say "getting swole."
Fire Certifications: FF2, Driver, AO-Pump Operator, Wildland Firefighter 2, Hazardous-Materials Awareness Operations, Company Inspector, Fire Instructor 1, Fire Officer 1.
