Cheryl Schweinsberg from Albany is only 28 years old and she's already dedicated almost half of her life to serving her community by volunteering to change lives and work as a paramedic in Albany attempting to save them as well.  She was nominated to be April's Hometown Hero by her admiring co-worker Brianna and we're really glad she was.  After we spent a few minutes with Cheryl on the phone, we were inspired by her passion for the work she does. Take a listen for yourself and see why Cheryl was chosen to be this month's Hometown Hero.

Cheryl informed us that she comes from a long line of first responders and that it's in her DNA to help people out, it's just what she loves to do.
