Wednesday, January 25th- Kathy Gallowitz, Lt. Col., U.S.A.F., Retired  | Beyond ‘Thank You for Your Service,’ The Veteran Champion Handbook for Civilians  

Everything about retired Lt. Col. Kathy Lowrey Gallowitz was influenced by military service, growing up as a Navy ‘brat’ and serving nearly 30 years as an Air Force Officer. Kathy noticed how different her experiences and mindset were from most Americans, compelling her to equip people who have never served in the military to become Veteran Champions. She is the author of “Beyond ‘Thank You For your Service,’ The Veteran Champion Handbook for Civilians,” and has Masters degrees in Nursing and Political Science. An award-winning businesswoman, Kathy coaches employers how to improve their bottom line by excelling at hiring and retaining Veteran talent, and as a thought leader pioneer, she equips volunteers to build Military Ministries to cultivate a sense of belonging and promote spiritual resiliency for military-connected people. Kathy is the Chair of Arizona's Veterans Service Advisory Commission, the Arizona Society of Human Resource Management’s Veteran Hiring Advisor, and founder of the Military Ministry VetConnect: Fountain Hills in Arizona.
