Humans of Scott: Airman leads the way; Senior Airman Tailor Kennebrew

Senior Airman Tailor Kennebrew, 375th Operational Medical Readiness Squadron flight and operational medical technician, is known as a team member others can rely on in times of crisis. Whether it be a crew shortage of 50%, a need for a morale boost, or just the desire for tranquility in the work center, Kennebrew takes pride in her ability to be a good teammate.

When asked about her accomplishments during a heavy drop of personnel at her unit, Kennebrew says that she refuses to let larger and sudden workloads overwhelm her. Instead, she keeps a level head and takes it one step at a time, being a calm presence at her office.

“I definitely keep a positive mindset to distinguish today's battle from tomorrow’s, because there's always a new challenge,” explained Kennebrew. She noted that her best strategy to keeping positive is by “just looking forward and past the situation at hand, not letting it consume me.”

Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Kennebrew joined the Air Force in 2016, wanting to pursue a career in the medical field. She is the proud mother of her three-year-old son Michael, and works hard to help him learn and grow. Kennebrew’s favorite part of being a technician is direct patient care, and being able to meet pilots and fliers everyday to learn from their experiences.

During a 50% technician shortage, Kennebrew was able to coordinate and facilitate 960 medical appointments, render world-class care, and oversee staff training for three months. On top of her extra workload, Kennebrew assisted providers in managing 107 waivers, returning 102 aircrew members to fully mission capable, which helped fuel 1,200 flyers and 2,200 airlift, air refueling and aeromedical missions.

She propelled the executive medicine clinic by assisting with medical exams, ancillary services, referrals, and profiles for the USAF’s second largest distinguished visitors clinic, serving 38 general officers, command teams, and their family members.

Kennebrew believes one of the most important aspects of her job is morale, and strives to create an environment full of camaraderie for her peers.

“Teamwork is the most important thing in the work center,” emphasized Kennebrew. “Look out for each other, and do your part”
