“I have led workshops focused on personal branding at the Women Veterans of Colorado conferences for several years. A veteran’s military service teaches them resiliency, leadership and commitment. Translating their experiences and skills into defined goals and branding themselves as viable candidates in the civilian workforce, leads veterans to being seen as valuable, compelling and relevant to employers”.
