The nurse from West Virginia flew to New York for the first time in her life earlier this year, to assist with COVID-19 relief at the Kings County Hospital Center in Brooklyn.

Ford then appeared at the Hard Work, Heroism & Hope ceremony at the White House, an event highlighting several individuals who had responded to the public health crisis.

Ford was given a chance to speak at the event, saying she was honored to serve the country on the front lines.
