I have enjoyed immensely my first term on the Board of Directors and seek service for another term as it has been a privilege thus far. The Veteran Caucus is one of the core AAPA supporting organizations and continues to make a difference on so many levels. We must keep this organization strong, engaged, and improving the lives of those we serve for years to come. I feel that I could help the organization grow and thrive in this ever-changing world. During my term and the most abnormal COVID impact, my skills proved important in utilizing IT and technology to stay connected with our members/stakeholders and redesign some aspects of our marketing. I would like to continue in this area as a great deal more need to get done or as we say in the military, "duties as assigned".
I humbly seek your vote for a second term as a director at large for the Veterans Caucus Board of Directors.
I am submitting my application packet for consideration of Veterans Caucus Director at Large. I have been serving at the University of North Texas Health Science Center School of Health Professions as an Assistant Professor for the Physician Assistant Studies Department since January 2014. I graduated from the Interservice Physician Assistant Program in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science degree. I took it upon myself to further seek a master’s degree on my own when the PA profession seemed to be going in that direction in the late 1990s. After retiring from the military in 2008 at the rank of Major, I had a strong interest in academic education, so I sought and was awarded a Doctoral Degree, graduating in 2012. Having served the University, the Texas Association of Physician Assistants and the American Academy of Physician Assistants in varied capacities over these years, I feel that I am qualified to serve the Veterans Caucus in the position of Director at Large. Additional qualifications for this position can be found in my attached Curriculum Vitae. I respectfully submit my application for this coveted position. I wish to thank the Board of Directors for their time and consideration of this request.
