My Site Inspired Me

Alumni story
Jayde Rankin 2019 2022 Tacoma

I served at the Pierce County Medical Reserve Corps which is a non-profit organization partnered with the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department. I served from 2019 to 2020. During my time of serving at my site I have not only been welcomed by fellow MRC volunteers and board members, but also the Health Department Staff I collaborated with along with the community as a whole. When I've been asked about my site or our mission I am so excited to share the work that I've been fortunate enough to be a part of. I know my journey with the Pierce County MRC will not end with my service, as I have had such a great time serving the community and making a true difference. From our routine clinics to homeless response and now responding to a pandemic I have been blown away by my organization and our volunteers. I  love seeing the enthusiasm from our volunteers and just experiencing selflessness of people who want to help vulnerable populations in their community, it inspired me so much to be a better advocate and member of my community.
