After Her Service Program Retreat (2017)

AHS Retreat, Dec. 2017, New Orleans

December 1-3, 2017
New Orleans, LA

M-SPAN hosted the first weekend retreat for After Her Service, a new resiliency and professional development program for Post-9/11 women veterans. After Her Service is funded by a grant from Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation grant, and in partnership with The Mission Continues.

Twenty-five women veterans from across the country spent a weekend developing resiliency skills. They were led by M-SPAN's Michelle Kees, PhD, and Jennifer Lamb, LMSW, MS. Following the retreat, each participant began 6-months of professional coaching with Stand Beside Them, a nonprofit coaching organization for veterans.
