Volunteer Spotlight: Kristin
Kristin Henry said her decision to volunteer with Hire Heroes USA began with a Google search. However, her desire to give back to military families ran deeper.
The daughter of an Army veteran, Kristin felt an intrinsic motivation to devote her time and expertise as an educator to the men and women who have served our country. In fact, the first veteran she helped didn’t sign up for services with Hire Heroes USA. Kristin’s neighbor and friend served in the military and asked if she could tutor him in English as he prepared to go back to school. That fulfilling experience led her to the Google search that connected her to Hire Heroes USA, where she continues to make a difference.
“Every interaction I have with a client is such a rewarding experience,” Kristin said. “I love giving back to those who sacrificed so much for our country and are in need of guidance as they prepare to enter the civilian workforce. “
Kristin is an outstanding Hire Heroes volunteer, having spent more than 41 hours helping veterans and military spouses prepare for their careers. Kristin also goes above and beyond, forging meaningful connections with Hire Heroes clients and staying in touch following their initial conversations.
“The best part about volunteering is when I clients I’ve helped share updates with me – I absolutely love keeping up with their success stories! At Hire Heroes, I always feel like I make a difference,” Kristin shared.
