Angelica Motta served as a signal support specialist in the U.S. Army Reserve before starting her Northwell career. Today, Angelica is an administrative support coordinator for Northwell’s Military Liaison Services. Her career journey here began in May 2021 and she is looking forward to continuing to grow her career at Northwell Health.
When Angelica was in the U.S. Army Reserve, she served with the 8th Medical Brigade where she provided IT support to the medical professionals in her unit. In that role, she helped set up the maintenance of computer hardware and software, radios, antennas, and satellite transceivers to help medical providers complete their missions. When Angelica left the military, she wanted to pursue a civilian career that will help other veterans and their families.
As Angelica was exploring civilian career opportunities, she was looking for something more meaningful. “I was looking for a career where I could serve a greater purpose,” says Angelica, “and that is why I started to look into careers at Northwell Health.” She had heard about the sense of community that Northwell offered its employees and was attracted to an organization like that.
With her passion of helping the community, Angelica found an opportunity at Northwell’s Military Liaison Services (NHMLS), which provides health, wellness, and career resources for active-duty military service members as well as veterans and their families. Angelica assists active military service members, veterans and their spouses with career exploration that includes resume writing, job preparation and interview techniques.
“Knowing that I can apply all of my skills and be part of a team within a company that is here for veterans and their families gives me a real sense of fulfillment,” says Angelica. In her role she also supports her department with services that include behavioral, clinical, employment, education, and life transitions. Angelica took the skillsets she learned while in the Army Reserve and applies them to her daily tasks. Her ability to maintain discipline and being quick to adapt to any situation allows her to be more effective in communicating with her team and serving her community.
Northwell offers a wide range of services for our veterans and their families. Examples include the Barracks to Business career workshops and the VALOR Business Employee Resource Group (BERG). Northwell helps our team members who have served in any branch of the military transition into their civilian career by showing veterans how to translate the skills they’ve learned in the armed forces and to apply them in the workforce, offering mentoring programs and networking opportunities to connect with others who have served or are currently serving in the U.S. military.
