Job Prior to The Mission Continues:
Corporate Marketing at Centene Corporation
Did not serve; wife of a Purple Heart recipient
My proudest moment:
Seeing my husband show off his prosthetic leg to a child who had just received her first prosthetic arm. The girl’s mother kept saying (in Spanish) “look my love, you’re not the only one.” This melted my heart a little bit.
Favorite summer activity:
Overlanding, self-reliant overland travel to remote destinations where the journey is the principal goal, with my husband and our two rescue dogs.

Most rewarding thing about working at The Mission Continues:
All of those on the team are truly passionate about helping veterans and achieving our goals. That passion is contagious and I cannot wait to see where it takes us!
