“In 2012, my husband lost a childhood best friend – a former Marine – to suicide. If through ReBOOT we are able to save one life, that’s one family who won’t have to hold the title of ‘White Star Family’. I’m honored to be able to connect the dots for veterans to find the root cause of the issues plaguing them every day and return them to their personal 100%.”
The wife of a Retired Marine Corps Staff Sergeant, and daughter and granddaughter to two military veterans, Meg is no stranger to the role our U.S. service members play and the impact that service can have on their lives. Meg, who serves as the Boot Campaign’s Program Director, saw firsthand the importance of post-service assistance when her now-husband was severely injured in Afghanistan and they were relocated to Washington D.C. for his lengthy recovery.
She now puts to good use a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education, experience as the School Initiative Coordinator for a fellow military non-profit and a variety of management-related career stops at the Boot Campaign, where she oversees the organization’s veterans assistance and awareness programs. Meg is Boot Campaign’s frontline ensuring candidates receive treatment as part of ReBOOT, ensuring veterans’ families receive gifts and assistance during the holidays through the Santa Boots program, and encouraging the public to “Get their boots on” by purchasing Boot Campaign combat boots.
