Staff Spotlight: Sidney


Transition Specialist | Hire Heroes USA Serving Spouses Program

“My favorite part about being a Transition Specialist is the individualized relationships and encouragement that I get to be a part of every single day.”

Sidney has always had a passion for serving her community. In college, she worked with the local homeless population to find work and assisted at-risk children and families. “While this was incredibly important and impactful work,” Sidney said, “I felt I needed to advocate for my tribe.” 

As the wife of a United States Marine, Sidney understands the challenges military spouses face, especially when it comes to building and maintaining a career. In 2018, Sidney joined the Hire Heroes team as a Transition Specialist for the Serving Spouses Program.

Her favorite part of the job? Working one-on-one with fellow spouses and providing encouragement. “I love getting to connect with someone who is right there on the edge of throwing in the towel on his or her search. I love helping them to see what they are capable of. Using my outside perspective on their skills and knowledge of the job market, I love giving them tips and tricks to find a job that makes them enjoy their Mondays, too.” 

Sidney’s passion and experience have empowered over 350 military spouses and veterans to find meaningful employment. Sidney is reminded daily of the incredible impact a donation makes.“You can see the individualized impact that your dollar had to help a real, living, empowered person find employment that created security and stability for a military family.” To learn more about our programs, and the Transition Specialist role, click here.
