Miranda Webster joined the practice of Tania Glenn & Associates, PA in 2019 to serve as the Peer Support Trainer. Miranda is a Registered Nurse and Board-Certified Flight Nurse that has spent 22 years in Emergency Medicine. She began her career in 1997 as an EMT, Advanced EMT and Nationally Registered Paramedic in her rural Indiana hometown. She received an associate degree in Paramedic Science and returned in 2004 to Ivy Tech Community College to obtain an ASN in Nursing. Upon graduation, Miranda worked for four years in the emergency department at St. Vincent Hospital and Methodist Hospital Level I Trauma Center in downtown Indianapolis. She had career aspirations of becoming a Flight Nurse and worked diligently to obtain the necessary experience and certifications working in the emergency department, intensive care unit and the cardiac cath lab. In 2010, she began her Flight Nursing career with PHI Air Medical and was hired for the Indiana St. Vincent StatFlight program. She became an instructor in several emergency medical and trauma courses for local fire and EMS programs. Miranda became the course director for the St. Vincent Trauma Nurse Core Course program and instructed the two-day course to emergency room nurses throughout the state of Indiana. In 2012, Miranda was chosen for the newly formed Peer Support team for PHI Air Medical and traveled to Texas to complete the initial training with Dr. Tania Glenn. Miranda quickly found a new passion for the work in Peer Support, supporting her fellow air medical professionals as well as the local EMS, police and fire departments.
In 2014, Miranda returned from Texas and her third year of reoccurring training for the Peer Support team, experienced professional and personal burnout. The physical and emotional exhaustion caused her to almost walk away from her career in Emergency Medicine and public service. Instead, she utilized the training, education and knowledge that she had gained about burnout and job-related stress from Dr. Glenn to make significant lifestyle changes to not only survive the burnout but thrive and learn to be resilient in her career and all aspects of her life. Miranda found a new passion in sharing her experience with other public service and healthcare professionals by developing and presenting a lecture “Battling Burnout”. Miranda is now an avid CrossFit athlete and yogi, certified Level 1 CrossFit trainer and promotes the importance of self-care, exercise, nutrition and work-life balance to survive and thrive in Public Service and healthcare.
Miranda is now a resident of New Braunfels Texas, moving from Indiana in January of 2019 to accept a position as a Flight Nurse for San Antonio Air Life. She is currently completing her bachelor’s degree in nursing with future plans to obtain her Master’s in mental health and continue to help serve the needs of our first responders.Email Miranda
