VA Northern California Health Care System
VSO Suzi Vinci
Thursday, December 15, 2016When people meet Suzi Vinci in the halls of the Sacramento VA Medical Center, they know in an instant that she takes being a Veterans Service Officer (VSO) very seriously.
In Fall 2015, Suzi received a grant from the California Department of Veterans Affairs that allowed her to come to the VA Sacramento campus two days a month to process claims for Veterans. She is one of three female VSOs in the area, and she is very popular with patients and staff alike.
Suzi's work often involves the more complex claim cases. Many of the Veterans she works with have military sexual trauma or deep emotional and physical concerns that make going to an ordinary public office difficult or impossible.
"I am hopeful to see how these claims unfold," said Suzi. "I anticipate there will be a lot of positive outcomes, either resolved or granted monetary benefits."
During her 11 months at the VA Medical Center in Sacramento, she has seen the results of her hard work. She alone has processed nearly 100 cases, of which 14 claims have been granted and 11 have received monetary benefits. Suzi's work and attitude just go to show that one person really can make a difference. If you would like to schedule an appointment with Suzi, please contact Rebecca Stallworth at email@example.com.
