On a personal basis, my father passed away on December 15, 2018. He was a Navy veteran and provider for a family of 8 children. I begin interning at the VA July 2018 and had no idea what God was setting up in my life. I could not imagine that after 5 months of interning at the VA that my father would pass suddenly. God knew exactly would to do. I believe he placed me at the VA for a reason and with my dad being a veteran himself helped me put services into place for not only me but my family as well. I love the VA and the work environment. I was able to work in a pod with not only 2 social workers but doctors and nurses. This has prepared me when working as a professional team to meet the needs of all of our veterans.
