Platoni knows what victims and those affected by the Las Vegas shooting are struggling with. She deals with survivor’s guilt, which is a major concern for others as well. In 2009, Platoni was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas when a gunman opened fire and killed 13 people while wounding 30 others. Although she was on the shooter’s hit list, she happened to be out of the room while the shooting occurred.
"I still live with the fact that several of those rounds were meant for me,” Platoni said. She continued, "I've tried to grow from that and rise to every challenge in terms of treating as many people who go through this traumatic event."
