Founder and CEO at Women Veteran Social Justice Network
The mission of Women Veteran Social Justice is to Identify, Connect, and Empower Women Veterans through social, professional and personal connections utilizing electronic and live networking across communities, states and the world. Technology and collaboration have been tools to firmly anchor and connect an otherwise invisible nation of women who have served with those who are serving and those who are preparing to serve in the military.
Our organization recognizes the challenges and barriers faced by today's women military personnel and veteran women. We also recognize the tremendous success we experience as well. It is our intention to stand as a call to action, to eliminate "reintegration problems" and "disrespect" so they are unnecessary words in our community.
In our online peer supportive services, we incorporate the following information materials and topics:
Managing financial risks of serving
Military Transition Life Skills
Navigating through the VA system
Personal Advocacy Skills
Community exploration and engagement
Tech enabled service learning
Educate women veterans on
entrepreneurship and business enrichment opportunities; including workforce development.
Unite federal, state, and community nonprofit organizations to ensure that every veteran regardless of sex and gender is receiving the care and resources earned through their selfless service
Special Areas of Consideration:
Equal access to VA care and services for women veterans
Military Sexual Trauma (MST) policy changes and services, VA services and education
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Suicide Prevention and Family Education
Alternative therapeutic health modalities (such as Healing Arts Programs)
