Founder and CEO of Wittenberg Weiner Consulting, Lauren Weiner is a military spouse with expertise in high-levels of government management. Co-owner and COO of WWC, Donna Honeycutt is an attorney, MSJDN member, and a guest lecturer on our webinar series. Through their work at WWC, they have emphasized the importance of providing rewarding career opportunities to highly qualified military spouse professionals both in the United States and OCONUS.
