• I was deployed to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), where I had the opportunity to teach burn management techniques to 13 UK nurses. This experience greatly improved the quality of care provided to patients and helped them in their recovery process.
  • During my time there, I took charge of the care for seven patients with second-degree burns and successfully facilitated their air evacuation. This ensured that they received continuous and seamless care throughout the process.
  • Following my deployment, I transitioned to the newly established San Antonio Military Medical Center. I quickly adapted to the new environment and excelled as a member of the critical care team, contributing to the overall success of the center.
  • As a preceptor, I had the privilege of guiding six ICU nurse fellows in their transition from being students to becoming novice ICU nurses. This mentoring process significantly improved team integration and cohesion within the unit.
  • One of my achievements was leading a successful 4.5-mile convoy to camp Rilea without any equipment loss. I maintained regular communication with the command by providing hourly reports. Additionally, I ensured the delivery and establishment of medical capability upon arrival.
  • I was responsible for supervising a team of 85 soldiers and actively participated in the setup and tear-down training of five airbeam tents. This not only boosted the staff’s confidence and readiness but also enhanced their overall performance.
  • When the U.S. Navy medical staff at the Javits Center became overwhelmed with civilian COVID-19 patients, I assumed the responsibility of managing these patients. Despite the challenging circumstances, I ensured critical care was sustained.
  • Over a three-week period, I managed a team that tirelessly worked 12-hour shifts while maintaining full personal protective equipment (PPE). Throughout this time, we provided treatment to over 120 critically ill patients.
  • In response to a crisis at the Queens NYC H&H facility, where 300 nurses were quarantined, I promptly responded and deployed to provide assistance. Our intervention prevented a failing service situation.
  • When the New York Health and Hospitals requested help due to 200 of their nurses being in COVID-19 quarantine, I coordinated a full spectrum response. Within 24 hours, we successfully delivered healthcare providers to meet their urgent needs.
  • In a critical situation where a patient’s medical condition was rapidly declining, I responded by activating the Code Blue System and initiating life-saving Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). As a result, the patient’s life was saved.
  • I successfully molded a team of 12 Training Managers into a cohesive unit. This contributed significantly to the education and training section receiving an “Outstanding” rating during the Health Services Inspection.
  • I played a vital role in planning, preparing, and coordinating training for 60 nurses and medical technicians on blood administration and code management. As a result, all participants achieved 100% trained readiness skills verification.
  • In the 16-bed ICU, I tirelessly cared for critically ill COVID-19 patients who required intubation and ventilation. Through efficient management, we were able to triple the ICU’s capacity, ensuring that more patients received the care they needed.
  • As part of the Army Reserve, I established a medical care team that achieved a significant milestone by integrating an Urban Augmentation Medical Task Force (UAMTF) into a civilian practice. This marked the first time such integration had occurred in Army Reserve history.
  • I provided valuable assistance in medical management and delegation, establishing clear priorities and efficient reporting and recording procedures. These improvements led to a 50% increase in the number of patients evaluated per day.
  • In the ICU, I leveraged the challenging circumstances as a training opportunity for my peers. I taught them advanced skills that had previously only been simulated, further enhancing their professional capabilities.
  • In an exceptional demonstration of teamwork, I provided patient care to two complete wards of COVID-19 patients, including overseeing overflow ICU patients. Despite the challenges, our 7-soldier ICW medical team met the demand and delivered quality care.
