Prince Frederick, MD- Ginger has worked for Calvert County Government in her current position for five years. As recruitment and retention specialist, she is responsible for coordinating the Calvert County fire/rescue/EMS volunteer benefits and providing ongoing support to each of the 900 volunteers. Some of these benefits include tuition assistance, childcare supplements, property tax incentives, a Length of Service Awards Program, discounts at various local businesses and high school recruitment offered through Calvert Technology Academy (CTA). Ginger is collaborating with the Board of Education in the hopes of giving more stability to the fire science and EMS two-year program.

“I love my job. I have a huge passion for it and helping those that are giving back to the community every day,” Ginger said. “Being able to help them move in a positive direction is very rewarding.”

Ginger graduated from Calvert High School and is actively working toward her degree in emergency medical services. Prior to joining county government, Ginger owned and operated an in-home family daycare for 12 years and was an advanced life support transport medic for All American Ambulance. Ginger also has a certification in critical incident stress management and has been a volunteer in the local fire/rescue/EMS field for 25 years.

In her free time, if she’s not on the road with her sons for a basketball or baseball game, or renovating her childhood home, Ginger likes to volunteer as a medic with Calvert Advance Life Support. Join us in thanking Ginger for her continued dedication and service.
