Our Team

We are veterans. We are military spouses. We are business professionals. We are on your team through your transition and beyond. The team is growing in response to the demand for expansion of COMMIT’s services, impact, and outreach. In addition to COMMIT’s full-time staff, a tremendous network of servicemembers, veterans, and patriots volunteer to serve as advisors and mentors when called upon for program support.
