Where did you serve and what did you do?
I honorably served as an Independent Duty Health Services Technician afloat and ashore with the US Coast Guard. I served as far South as Puerto Rico up the coast of Maine bordering Canada. My boat was home-ported in Newport RI. We sailed up the Hudson River during Operation Reliable Energy. This allowed various home heating elements to be safely transported from NYC up to Albany.
How are you #StillServing?
Currently, I work for Cigna’s On-Site Health Wellness Center at Citizen’s Bank Johnston Campus. There are 3-4K colleagues here at any given time. My team of 3 (1 FNP, and another MA) are responsible for their health care to include annual physicals, phlebotomy services and urgent care with POCT for other contagious illness.
Why do you do it?
‘Helping others in need’ and ‘So that others may live’.. 2 mottos I strongly live by. I knew working in the medical field was my calling and its a true gift to provide healthcare to our great country.
