Work and Professional Experience

A public health organization which serves as the Coos County public and behavioral health. I was hired as the document unit lead, and was promoted to the other listed positions during the 9 month period of my employment. My responsibilities include but are not limited to:

DUL – Track down all documentation whether electronic or paper pertaining to the organizations participation in the Pandemic research, communication, Primary Field Notes, Medical records, Medical Billing, and Updates.

DeMobUL – the preparation of original documentation via interaction with various departments within the medical center as well as county level human resources to determine what items and documentation needed to returned from exiting employees who are either returning to previous positions held within the organization or are temporarily employed as support for the Pandemic. Attendance of weekly meetings with Supervisors from each department to facilitate this process.

IMT Assistant – Set-up conference room for bi-weekly Zoom meetings and took attendance for said meetings. Assisting in onboarding interviews , training of temporary contact tracers and case investigators.

Resources Unit Lead – the development and maintenance of the Incident Action Proposal a bi-weekly document from which the COVID response team drew their assigned tasks to address the current status of the County during this pandemic. It also contains contact details and assigend positions within the COVID response team, as needs changed hence the document required updates. Attended multiple meetings and took minutes so that those discussions were to be included in the archives of the organization. Confirmed and updated information on the IAP documentation which included contacts, resources, and pargnerships with external organizations as well as County resources ona bi-weekly basis which was sent forth to Supervisors to review and sign.

Situational Status Unit Lead – maintained and updated a document that listed details and events that pertained to the COVID crisis within Coos County and State of Oregon, for information dispersal witihn the organization, to community partners, and the public.

Time Unit Lead – the collection of ICS 214 Activity logs from each individual who served as support furing the pandemic, whether employed or volunteering in on-campus activities or off-site at vaccine PODs throughout Coos County. Reviewing each for inaccuracies, communicating needed changes with each employee as need should arise. The documents were then scanned and saved in Basecamp for archival and grant-seeking purposes. The paper document was then filed by date and stored in long-term storage for the aforementioned archival purposes.

These positions are temporary, and there is no indication as to when it shall end, with no increase in pay to equate the increased responsibilities. I am uncertain as to the type of reference they may give for me. I am applying for a new position at this time so that I can have long-term stability. I was assigned the above added responsibilities and positions as needs arose. I was wiling to accept these added responsibilities as a learning opportunity and development of skills. However, I have been informed that there is no need for my services once the pandemic ends, or perhaps even before.
