About the author

Jessie Senini is a clinical research paramedic and recovering art student with more than a decade of EMS experience with private, municipal and federal EMS agencies. Having traveled across the country to live in Louisiana, a state with no snow, Senini now draws from her experiences on the truck to bring humor and awareness to life and issues surrounding emergency services. Senini truly believes that laughter is the best medicine and hopes to continue to treat those around her through comics.

About the art

Jessie Senini has spent her entire life surrounded by the arts. From a young age, she was painting before she could even write. Inspired by her father, John Senini, and his historic paintings of the Civil War, Jessie learned to develop her own unique style and inspiration- drawing from her travel experiences and love for adventure.

After high school, a spontaneous trip to Europe inspired Jessie Senini to study and major in Art History. She spent some time following her BA working for the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman Montana before pursuing a career in EMS as a paramedic. She now resides in New Orleans and is finishing additional training at Tulane University in Graphic and Digital Design.

About the blog

Nola Lush is a blog dedicated to everything being “lush” entails.  There is no finer city in the world than New Orleans that encapsulates what it means to both be lush… and to be a lush.  Our rich food, music, lifestyle, and festivals keep our city constantly thrumming with a bounding cacophony of brass, second lines, and parades.

But even through all of that, you can find a quite in this city.  Whether you are walking through City Park and the NoMa, kayaking on Bayou St John, strolling through the Marigny with your latte, or whatever you may be doing- the beat of New Orleans still hums all around you.

The world of New Orleans is different when you are a transplant. Everything is new and foreign.  But be careful… because once you drink more than one Hurricane at Pat O’Brien’s, you may just end up with an apartment here.




This episode was also brought to you by Xiphos Books & Training. Xiphos Books is responsible for books such as ‘Welcome to New Orleans… How many shots did you hear? Volume 1 and 2 as well as the fiction novel A Salty Life & A Traitor’s Death. Be sure to stop by their website and look at their books, training and public speaking dates.


Remember that next week we will be interviewing Tactical Paramedic with the FBI and noted field manual author, Jim Morrissey……………   DON’T MISS IT!
