It is an honor to work for VA and conduct research that will improve the quality of care delivered to our nation’s heroes. My family has a long history in the military and I have relatives who are currently VA patients. I distinctly recall my first trip to Arlington National Cemetery to acknowledge my ancestors from the American Revolution to my grandfather in World War II. My father was a Captain in the Army and I have cousins on both sides of my family who currently serve in the Navy, Marines, and Army. I strongly support the mission of VA and I am passionate about serving our nation’s Veterans through my role as an Investigator at CHOIR.
