During this period I held several positions, each leading to promotion.  As the Physical Evaluation Board Liasion Officer at Mt Home AFB
I worked closely with AF personnel to counsel and prepare them for possible separation or retirement from active duty due to medical reasons.
I worked closely with the physicians of the AF hospital in advising them on requirements for medical information that must be submitted to have AF personnel removed from active duty.  I arranged medical boards and remained in close contact with the individual, the commander and headquarters to complete a medical board and arrange discharge. 
In transferring to the VA hospital in Boise, I began by working as the Radiology department receptionist for 2 years.  In that capacity I registered all patients arriving for xray, nuclear medicine and ultrasounds.  I greeted patients advised them of wait time, and kept them advised.  I was responsible for daily xray schedules requiring tests from in-patients, ultra sound injections, and heart nuclear testing.  I registered all tests from outside hospitals, and ensured all patients were comfortable and happy with the department.
After holding this position, I was promoted by several grades to Social Work Assistant in Mental Health department, where I met with incoming patients who needed to be seen by a mental health provider.  I completed psychological testing and arranged for the patient to meet with either a psychologist or psychiatrist.  I took emergency calls, assessed them as to urgency and provided the appropriate follow up.  I worked closely with mental health professionals on call to keep them advised of emergency mental health patients.  I monitored elderly mental health veterans who were isolated in their homes and unable to get to the hospital to determine their needs and ensure the need was met.  I arranged for mental health patients to be seen emergently or routinely based on assessments of need.
I retired from the US government in Jan 2012. 
Prior to this government work, I was the Director of an Adult Day Health Care Center that provided health monitoring, nutrition, socialization and family respite in a large facility in Glendale Arizona. I was chosen as Employee of the Year in 1993.
Before this time in Arizona, because my spouse was military, and we were transferred often, I taught grades 5 and 6 in Virginia.
 I also  served 14 years on both active duty in the Air Force and AF Reserves while I completed by MS degree.  I was chosen as AF Veteran of the Year at Eglin AFB, Fl in 1982.
After a year of retirement, as I planned, I want to return to work.  I am active and want to be involved in the community of assisting others, teaching or working in a productive position. 
I have always had the best of work ethics and have gotten along extremely well with co workers. I have a sense of humor, but am serious about the work that I am doing at any position I hold.   I am responsible and dedicated as evidenced in the performance ratings I have received over the years. 
Thank you for your consideration.
