She served as Chief of Medical Operations for U.S. Air Forces in Europe. as commander of the Air Force hospital at Warner Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, twice at  Tinker Air Force Base and in Japan and England. 

McCann organizes and trains volunteers to support Democratic political candidates in Oklahoma. She was previously chair of Change Oklahoma and now works to expand medical care in Oklahoma. 

"Canadian Valley Technology Center has hosted our meetings for more than 10 years," Canadian County Democrats Secretary Shirley Burton said.
