I have facilitated workshops throughout various military bases, helping our U.S. military and their family’s transition from the military to civilian life and careers.

As a Career Coach, I have coached veterans, alumni, and students from two leading universities to identify their transferable skills, brand their value proposition leading them to make successful career transitions into their targeted fields and career choices.

As an advocate for Veterans I have represented them at the VMBA Career Conference coached them individually and in groups, and used my skills and expertise as a Career Coach to create individualized action plans designed to clarify their business and life purpose goals, identify obstacles, and remove barriers as they step out of the military and into the civilian world and shine.

To support the inaugural VeTcave Build Project, I will be working with the first recipient, Sgt. Nathan Taylor, to help him build his entrepreneurial dream of offering a service dog training program. I will work with him from inception through the implementation of his entrepreneurial vision. See more here .
