PRANG Profile: Airman 1st Class Kenia Coreano

By Tech. Sgt. Rafael Rosa, 156th Wing

CAROLINA, Puerto Rico – Airman 1st Class Kenia Coreano, a Security Forces journeyman with the 156th Security Forces Squadron, brings a wealth of knowledge to her section.

Coreano has been in security forces for two years but brings 10 years of experience from her civilian employment in the Puerto Rico police department.

She decided to enlist in the Puerto Rico Air National Guard for professional growth and new experiences.

"Deciding to join the Air Force was scary at first because of the language barrier," said Coreano. "But I wanted to prove to myself that whenever someone sets their mind on a goal, they can achieve it."

Coreano brings a fresh perspective on improving processes by comparing local law enforcement programs and procedures with those of the Air Force.

She does so with a positive attitude and is proud to serve by ensuring that all personnel on base are safe to perform their duties.

"In the mornings, I treat every person entering the base with respect and bring positive energy," said Coreano. "Being the first person they see, it sets the tone and can help some have a good start to their day."

With a willingness to help her peers and be an active part of a team, Coreano has joined the Rising Six council and is the public affairs liaison.

All while keeping in mind her goals of self-improvement and one day being part of the squadron's training section so she may pass down her experience to others.

"I visualize Coreano in the future as a flight trainer, maybe even a combat arms instructor," said Tech. Sgt. Andres Ramos, the 156th SFS alpha flight supervisor. "She's a great asset in regards to teaching others, with a mentorship mentality to help others improve in their work life."
