My work experience is quite rich, I managed to try to use my knowledge and skills in different directions: in emergency medicine, intensive care and anesthesia. Also, I am the first nurse in Estonia to be hired by the Alarm Center as a "on-call doctor" - before me only doctors worked in this position. Finally, I realized that my favorite field of medicine — what I feel, know, know, and love — is emergency medicine. I stayed on the mobile phone and started to share my experience and knowledge with others. I am currently dedicating myself to the work of a trainer-instructor.
The simulation group is an association of volunteers that simulates the victims of various trainings and exercises. The group's activities began in 2007, when the group participated in military-sports competitions organized by the Erna Society.
