WHITEHOUSE, Ohio (WTVG) - Cheryl Smigelski-Marty started her career as a firefighter-paramedic in 1982. Since then, she has spent more than 40 years serving people in her community, first with the Swanton Fire Department, then with the Whitehouse Fire Department.

Cheryl’s compassion for others drives her to serve her community, even though she could have retired from the department years ago.

”Everyone in the NWO area knows Cheryl,” says Whitehouse Chief Joshua Hartbarger. “One thing we love about her is that every day she walks in here she has a smile on her face, and she is so eager to help patients anyone in our community.”
