She is with the Expeditionary Medical Facility (EMF) Great Lakes One, Illinois, that participated as the assistant officer in charge for the Navy and site officer in charge for the Grace Annville Site during a joint-service training mission, called Operation Coal Country, which took place in the counties of Clay, Leslie, Jackson and Knox, Kentucky from July 30 to August 12, 2019.
