Heather Cady, RN, CCEMT-P, always knew that she wanted to work in the medical field and after graduating from Massabesic High School she did just that. Heather first attended Northeastern University in Boston, where she earned her paramedic certification. From there she furthered her medical knowledge by obtaining her associate degree in nursing from Southern Maine Technical College. Before coming to LifeFlight in 1998 Heather worked as a paramedic for Portland Fire’s MEDCU and as a nurse in the Emergency Department at Maine Medical Center.
