NRD San Antonio Sailor selected for Health Services Collegiate Program

By Burrell Parmer Navy Recruiting District San Antonio Public Affairs

Petty Officer 1st Class Narce Segovia was selected by the Navy's Health Services Collegiate Program, or HSCP, to receive a masters of healthcare administration from Texas State University.

Segovia, a personnel specialist and native of Mission, Texas, served as the leading petty officer for Navy Recruiting District San Antonio’s administration department from 2012 to 2016 at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston.  During her tour, she was recognized as the NRD and Recruiting Region West’s Senior Sailor of the Year for fiscal year 2013.

After graduation in 2019, Segovia will receive her commission and attend the five-week Officer Development School in Newport, R.I.

Segovia attributes this opportunity to other female Sailors who have served at NRD San Antonio.

“Lt. Veronica White, a former medical officer program recruiter was my mentor; it’s because of her that I pursued the HSCP,” said Segovia, who enlisted as an officer candidate first class at the NRD headquarters.  “It was also leaders such as Cmdr. Corry Juedeman, Cmdr. Karen Muntean, Lt. Cmdr. Sasha Smith and Chief Gina Valdez who I looked up to.”

Segovia joined the Navy in 2001 after graduating from Mission High School and began taking college courses in 2002 at Everett Community College in Everett, Wash.  She completed her bachelors of business management through the use of the Tuition Assistance Program from the University of the Incarnate Word in 2015.

“I love the Navy,” Segovia said. “For me to be able to further my education and become an officer in the world’s great Navy is not only a privilege but an extreme honor.”
