A junior in college, Army ROTC cadet and writing intern for the VA-DME team, Joanna sheds light on her day-to-day life juggling all of her responsibilities and how they have shaped who she is today. Taking the chance in high school with their Navy JROTC program, she came to realize a passion toward the career paths and work which military service can provide. She credits the program for helping to develop her character and attaining the work ethic, which she brings to all of her endeavors including this internship. Studying psychology and leadership in college, all the while participating in ROTC, Joanna grew a particular interest and respect for the veteran community as she seeks to give back to those who served. Her ideals, experiences and desire to work with people led her to find the VSFS VA-DME internship. She is excited to be a part of a team that is giving her the opportunity to be a part of a team that highlights veterans and gives them recognition for their service.
