I am a Veteran and have family members who are veteran's I have been with the Department of Veterans Affairs for over five years. I have worked at various locations and held several job titles thought out my time. It's a wonderful place to work if you are seeking job security and its very competitive when seeking advancement opportunities. My very first supervisor told me to always remember that when the government shuts down that we serve the Veterans and we are essential personal and will all ways have to report to work. I have worked on amazing teams, with excellent supervisors, co-workers; clinical, providers, and upper management.
My favorite clinic I would have to say, was the Jacksonville OPC and of course the Red Team Primary Care. I currently work at the Veteran's Crisis Line and well it can be very challenging but the most rewarding part of my typical work day is when I am able to locate and save a veterans or civilian life who is in crisis. Anyone who knows me I am always trying to recruit people that I know is looking for and seeking employment. Every organizations has its issues and challenges, however what sets the VA apart from other Agencies is that it is always striving toward Excellence. As its just one of the five Core Values.
Integrity, Commitment, Advocacy, Respect, and Excellence. The core values define “who we are,” our culture, and how we care for Veterans and eligible beneficiaries
