Velarie's skills and talents are utilized in various areas, such as being a Receiving, Storing, and Staging (RSS) warehouse Assistant, Bahozho' Telemedicine Tablet Project team member, and a Technical Assistant – providing COVID-19 prevention education and Pod-site Home Deliveries.
At the RSS warehouse, Velarie assists with receiving, inventorying, and storing COVID-19 relief donations. Working at the warehouse requires lifting, sometimes heavy objects, which has helped build her endurance and strength. She also helps with distributing personal protective equipment to different programs and departments of the Navajo Nation. Valarie provides tablets to patients in the Bahozho’ Telemedicine Tablet Project, so healthcare providers can keep in contact with their patients who are at high risk of COVID-19.
Besides receiving donations and visiting patients, she offers encouragement to patients, letting them know they are of significant worth, and continuing to persevere and endure through these troubling times.
