I worked the COVID-19 Response in support of Health and Human Services for a private contractor at the apex of getting much-needed medical supplies to NY, NJ, CA, WA, MI, IL, and LA in March 2020, creating task orders and coordinating distribution from the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS). I then participated in the integration and coordination effort to transition HHS from being the lead federal agency in March to FEMA being the lead federal agency for the COVID-19 crisis working out of FEMA’s National Response Coordination Center. Due to complications with COVID-19 “stay at work” orders administered in DC, MD, and VA, and restrictions upon returning to Florida, my deployment was cut short. I returned home to Florida after a period of quarantine in April, and was hired by the Small Business Administration (SBA) to work remotely in support of the CARES Act and SBA’s effort to assist America’s small business.
