Bio 

I have been fortunate to work in many different TDA and TOE units. I have seen the line as well as the hospital. I've worked as a straight line medic and as a ICU nurse in the Army's #1 Level 1 Trauma Center. I love problem solving, process improvement and efficiency. I've had the privilege of having many Soldier's from all walks of life. Some became officers, some went home. All are heroes.
