The peer leader training retreat in New Orleans is coming up in a few short weeks. WoVeN groups will start meeting only three weeks later!

At the training retreat, WoVeN’s amazing peer leaders will inspire and empower one another to build strong and lasting communities of women Veterans in their cities. These incredible peer leaders are from all over the country:

  • Cat & Tina from Charlotte, NC
  • Brooke & Lauren from Pittsburgh, PA
  • Eyvette & Valerie from Richmond, VA
  • Drea, Brandy, & Yolande from Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX
  • Leah & Cait from Austin, TX
  • Wendy & Renee from Phoenix, AZ
  • LaShondra & Nataskia from Houston, TX
  • Tracie & Valerie from San Antonio, TX
  • Trish & Kipp from Warner Robins, GA

These inspiring women are passionate about supporting other women Veterans. Here’s what a few of them have to say about getting involved in WoVeN:

“Since moving to Houston, I’ve seen the need for an outlet for our Veterans, especially women Veterans; WoVeN is just that. I am interested in becoming involved with WoVeN because I feel that as women Veterans, we need to be able to connect with our peers in addition to empower each other through the difficult times. In sum, my goal is to share my knowledge and experience with other women like myself.”   -Nataskia from Houston. TX

“In my travels, I’ve noticed over the years how hard it is to find a group of women Veterans all in one place. There are so many groups for men and I’m hoping that being a part of WoVeN, together, we can start to change that. I am looking forward to this!”   -Wendy from Phoenix, AZ

“I am so thrilled to be able to join the WoVeN team and support and empower other female Veterans in the Austin community!”   -Cait from Austin, TX
