About the Author:

KERRY ANNE WHITELOCK, D.O.

Kerry Anne Whitelock, D.O. received her Honors degree in biology, a minor in world literature, and a master’s degree in nutrition, all from the Pennsylvania State University-University Park Campus. During this time, she also served as a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) with Alpha Community Ambulance Service, Inc., now Centre LifeLink EMS. During her last year of service to Alpha, she was selected to be an officer-in-charge (OIC), helping the organization earn its national accreditation status. Kerry responded to hundreds of EMS calls during her 5 years as an EMT, most notably the HUB Lawn sniper incident in 1996, during which she provided emergency care to one of the shooting victims. It was this incident that sparked Kerry’s interest in the field of enhancing mental performance during stressful emergency situations. Her medical school education at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, internal medicine residency experience at Mercy Hospital of Pittsburgh, and current academic internist responsibilities have all deepened Kerry’s commitment to teaching EMS personnel about how they can maintain mental toughness during medical emergencies. While Kerry has published articles about various topics in the fields of nutrition and medicine, Code Calm-EMS is her first book.
