Award Recipient

Chantelle Peacock Hammel

CNSA Indigenous Health Award

I have always had a passion for helping people, it didn’t matter where I was or what needed to be done. It started when I was a very young age when I pursued training to become a lifeguard, where I worked for several years. Following my job as a lifeguard, I joined my local volunteer fire department and became a medical first responder. Serving those in my community really intrigued me and allowed me to develop a level of compassion many never experience. As time went on serving on my local department, I was presented with numerous opportunities to work side by side with the STARS Air Ambulance crew. Throughout these experiences, my love for STARS grew. Everything thing they did, the people they helped, the lives they saved, everything they carried onboard, and what they could do on the field. Shortly after joining the department, and after working with STARS only a few times I knew exactly what I was meant to do. I returned to school to upgrade a few high school classes and applied for university. My path to becoming a Registered Nurse began in the fall of 2019. I have accepted that the road to becoming a Registered Nurse is long and hard, but with dedication and devotion, I hope to one day serve as a member of the STARS Air Ambulance Team.
