LTC US Army
After attending Pittsburgh Langley High School, she put herself through the University of Pittsburg where she earned a master's degree in nursing. In 1984, she joined the military and spent the next 25 years in active duty and Army reserves. As a certified psychiatric nurse practitioner, her expertise was in post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. She had served a year overseas at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany and regularly volunteered for round-trip flights to Iraq to care for soldiers being sent to Landstuhl. She received an Army Commendation Medal in 2006 for meritorious service at Landstuhl. She had volunteered for deployment to Iraq and had only been at Fort Hood for 24 hours before being killed – she was due to leave the end of November. She was one of 300 soldiers who were lined up to get shots and eye-testing at the Soldier Readiness Center at Fort Hood when shots rang out. She and another soldier threw another soldier to the ground and covered him with their bodies, thereby sacrificing their own lives to save the third soldier's life. The soldiers were processing to either return from or about to be sent overseas. A disgruntled US Army psychiatrist killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others before he was brought down.
She was survived by her husband; two daughters; three step-children; and eight grandchildren.
