MSJDN’s Communications Director Lori Volkman was featured in the News You Can Use Blog run by Pioneer Services this week, at the kick-off of Military Appreciation Month. Highlighting an issue that affects nearly one in three military spouses, including MSJDN’s members, Lori talked about  military spouse licensing issues, and the many ongoing efforts to reduce licensing barriers and support military spouse career portability. Her simple message: Get involved! There are lots of ways to help, and the changes being worked on will make an incredible difference for military families.


Another take away from Lori? Support is everything! That is why we are so excited about MSJDN’s upcoming Making the Right Moves event on May 22, which will provide not only career development (although that is important) and networking (also important), but a chance for us to come together as military spouses and professionals and build interpersonal relationships. We hope to see you there!
