Deborah Tillman, MSN, ARNP, A-GNP-C
Deborah Tillman grew up in Ellensburg, WA, discovering a love for lifelong learning at Central Washington University and being an active part of her community. She enjoyed being a land use planner for her home county for many years.
Upon moving to the Olympic Peninsula 27 years ago, she pursued her dream of being in the medical field as a career firefighter-paramedic and emergency medical services instructor. She then went on to earn her Master of Nursing Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner degree at Seattle University.
She has found great satisfaction in supporting fire districts as a volunteer and elected official. She volunteers her time conducting medical evaluations for new volunteers in her favorite rural fire district, experiencing the fresh excitement of the new volunteers' first involvement in emergency response work. She is also an appointed Fire Commissioner for the fire district where she lives.
Those living in rural areas are encouraged to seek ways to support their local fire district and community. Fire district volunteer support can include:
- Infrequent grant writing and levy vote efforts
- Regular equipment tracking and maintenance
- Ongoing training and facility support
- Daily emergency responses
It is a great way to meet neighbors and feel a part of the community. Everyone from high school students trying out possible career paths to retirees continuing to use their life experience can find volunteer satisfaction.
She also enjoys hiking and exploring the Olympic Mountains along with her husband. Trips to visit family spread across the country are among her favorite activities.
At The Manette Clinic, Deborah is a provider of community facilities, which is an excellent fit with her previous experience as an emergency medical responder.
