Marc Herbert first volunteered for CES back in 1993, which helped spark an early interest in the medical field. Marc went on to become a registered nurse, and today is a nurse leader at F.F. Thompson Hospital. Earlier this year, he made the jump from volunteer to per diem road paramedic for CES.

When he’s not at Thompson or CES, Marc owns and operates three businesses in his hometown of Geneva—Mr. Twistee’s Ice Cream (which has two locations) and Toeprints Dance Studio—with his wife Barbara. Marc and Barbara have a 2-year-old daughter named Amelia.

If you've been injured, we can help you back on your feet. Borrow crutches, canes and walkers from our community loan closet. And when you're done, donate them back to us so someone else can benefit as well.
