My name is Jessica and I am a Navy veteran with 5 years of service. From the time I left the service, I was dumbfounded on what to do & how to start.

WVTS made me very comfortable with the transition and I couldn’t have done my first steps without knowing this program! I would highly recommend this program to ALL women in transition from military to civilian workforce!

On April 23, 2017 the Women Veterans Transition Space held its 1st Coffee Conversations and Careers. The event was a huge success! Attendees stepped into an atmosphere known as “Military Mondays powered by Starbucks,” and were intrigued and attentive from start to finish!  Attendees gained exposure to employment resources and opportunities, had one-on-one advice on translating their military skills into civilian terms, gained valuable insight on confidence building, personal branding, and received interview preparation insight, while enjoying access to local and national industry experts.

We are not heroes for serving and supporting veterans – rather, the veterans that we serve and support are the REAL heroes.

AAEAAQAAAAAAAARMAAAAJDMyNDQ3MDg1LWIxYTYtNGJiNi1hZGFiLWZhZDZmY2Y1Njk4ZQ (1)Serving veterans has become fashionable and lucrative. Serving veterans has become a network of who’s who and who’s not who. Supporting veterans has become a cat fight. If you are not a part of the elite group of nonprofits, then you cannot join in on the fun nor can you join the team. Since when did serving and supporting veterans become fun, become a sport?
