Now, she works at the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command with the E-Intern Program. Service runs deep for Kailah; many of her family members are veterans and her husband also served. Over the last two years, Kailah has helped many veterans and military spouses transition into the civilian workforce.

Kailah continues to use her resources and experience in recruiting veteran talent to support Hire Heroes USA clients.
Q: Why do you volunteer with Hire Heroes USA? “I volunteer because I have been on all sides of the veteran equation. I am a veteran and I am the spouse and family member of veterans. I have been hired under my veteran status in the private and public sector, and I have been part of the hiring process where I specifically look to recruit veteran talent. I want to help our clients because I wish I had a mentor or counselor who had known as much as I and all of our volunteers know about the opportunities available and how the process may work for them.”
