Enjoyed the experience of working with our military wounded warriors
Alumni Manager (Former Employee) – Landstuhl, Germany and Colorado Springs, CO – October 17, 2016
The job was challenging and rewarding. I learned a lot about being a manager of people and communicating with multiple personalities. A typical day included meetings with my staff, discussing warriors and how we could best serve them and their families. We worked closely with other veteran organizations to give the warriors the best care we could.
I had amazing , hard working staff that really cared for the warriors and families. Trying to maintain a work life balance not only for myself but to make sure staff did as well. We were responsible for warriors in a 4 state area so that meant traveling and time away from family.
I really enjoyed the success stories, the families ww could help. To see the families grow and cope with their new normal was rewarding.
The hardest part was letting the warriors stumble and fall occasionally so they could learn to be strong without us and to push them at times to do the right thing.
I enjoyed my time with WWP but knew it was time for me to go back to my first love, nursing, so that is why I made the decision to move on.
worked with a great group of people that really cared
short staffed, many warriors to care for with multiple issues
