“I can’t change the world but I can change something in individual lives.”

Capt Joiner said the CAF is a great career opportunity for young women, because of the rewarding experiences and mentorship she has received throughout her military service. Her career in the CAF has taken her through several career changes within the medical field, including tasks that are unlike anything she’d get to experience in another similar civilian job, such as her deployment to Haiti in 2010 with the Disaster Assistance Response Team. “You will surprise yourself, you are capable of a lot more than you think you are. Decide on something and just do it, be it boot camp or a deployment or medical school.”

“At the end of the day you always feel like you’ve done something. You’ve made somebody’s life better,” she explains. “I can’t change the world but I can change something in individual lives, even something as simple as an antibiotic for someone’s sore throat. Those little things actually help people.”
