Your Real Champion: Someone Saved My Life Tonight

Your Real Champion of the week is Michelle Monzo, a Crisis Intervention Education Specialist at Montgomery County Emergency Service (MCES).

Michelle has spent 30 years training first responders how to safely intervene when a person is contemplating suicide and in other dangerous emergencies. She herself is a negotiator and has successfully convinced many troubled people out of a dangerous choice. For 20 years, she volunteered to lead a team of volunteer 1st responders who comfort their colleagues who have been traumatized by the sadness they see regularly.

Each week we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community. Know someone who should be featured? Nominate them now!
