“The call to serve doesn’t die with the end of your military service…Once you serve, I think you always want to find a way to continue that service.” -Anna Christen
“Sharing is caring in the veteran space. I’m a believer that we should be sharing resources, sharing information across all our networks and all of our social media outlets…We need to provide our veterans with as many opportunities as possible, but sharing those messages is [important] because we all want the same thing. We want our veterans and military spouses to have enriched lives.” -Adrienne Sherk
“I got out of the military and had to figure out what I wanted to do and what I was passionate about. I didn’t really know. I really loved serving. I came from a family of civil servants, and so I think that was instilled in me. When I tried my hand in the corporate world, I enjoyed it, but wasn’t passionate about it. I wasn’t thrilled going to work every single day, and so I kind of knew there was something missing. So I needed a change, professionally.” -Adrienne Sherk
“In any situation, but sports in particular, you have an opportunity to really evaluate yourself, and how you can have an impact no matter what role you play.” -Adrienne Sherk
