Partner in Success: Laurie Reed

Laurie Reed, Hire Heroes Volunteer

For Laurie, helping others find their place in the civilian workforce is a personal and professional calling. Laurie earned her Masters Degree in Career Counseling and has worked in Vocational Rehabilitation for 30 years. Through the decades, Laurie has learned a lot about how to help others overcome challenges and plan for success. “I have worked with veterans in my career,” Laurie explains, “and [I] have a great deal of experience assisting veterans with disabilities including individuals with PTSD who need vocational guidance and counseling to return to work.” 

Giving back has long been a part of Laurie’s life, too. “I have always been an active volunteer and learned the value of volunteering early on through my family,” Laurie shared. “It has been very meaningful to work with HHUSA clients to provide career counseling advice particularly when I get to experience their joy in having a plan and direction to guide their career choices. I hope to provide volunteer services through my retirement.” 

Through career counseling sessions and mock interviews, Lauries is helping veterans and military spouses find a productive path forward. In the 19 hours she’s invested in our mission, she has helped clients realize professional success is within reach. On National Volunteer Week, we want to say thank you. Thank you, Laurie, for being on our team!
