Our Founder, Ginger Miller, describes herself as a hard-charger. For those who know her story or who have seen her in action at WVIF events, this is completely clear.
Ginger served in the Navy from 1988-1993. Transitioning to civilian life was tough, and Ginger and her family faced the struggles of homelessness. But, after working three jobs and earning her bachelor of science in Accounting from Hofstra University, Ginger worked and thrived at JP Morgan Chase – a company that would later support WVIF’s initiatives.
During this time, Ginger founded a nonprofit organization, John 14:2, to serve Veterans. And, she began gaining recognition as one of the most successful leaders in Veteran Advocacy. Her work and determination earned her positions on esteemed boards and councils. Plus, two U.S. Presidents honored her service, naming her a White House Champion of Change under the Obama Administration, and appointing her as a member of the USO Board of Governors under the Biden Administration.
But, for Ginger, these honors and appointments aren’t about her own, personal recognition; rather, she is grateful that they provide her more opportunities to advance her mission of serving Women Veterans.
