Recently, VCU Hospital graduating EMS Fellow Stephanie Krebs Louka, was presented the Nicole Dawn Kielar Award for her work promoting and improving EMS care on a regional, national and international level.
Stephanie began her love for emergency medicine as an EMT with the Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad. Her compassion too help the sick and injured in the pre-hospital setting set the ground work for her decision to attend Eastern Virginia Medical School. While attending medical school at EVMS, Stephanie continued to run EMS calls as an Enhanced EMT with Rescue Station 14, the largest and busiest of the 10 volunteer rescue squads in VA Beach.
After graduation, Stephanie and her husband Dr. Amir Louka, relocated to the Richmond area of Virginia where both entered the EMS Fellowship program at VCU Hospital.
