While she did find work as a DoD contractor running programs for veterans in transition, the contract nature of the work meant her employment was subject to budget constraints. Despite three promotions, when she was laid off for the second time, she decided to become an entrepreneur out of necessity and started a staffing agency. She started out writing resumes for transitioning Soldiers, but then with her personal and professional experience, realized a better niche was helping military spouses. Today, she’s helped thousands of military spouses find jobs and careers and she shares what she’s learned in this episode.
