Hannalee Ebanks2 173x300 - Hannalee Ebanks, Navy VeteranHow was the transition from military? While the transition from the military was challenging, there are many resources available to help support military personnel. The military Transition Goals, Plans, Success (TGPS) process prepared me adequately to be able to find employment as soon I separated from the service.

What would you advise to other women that will be transitioning soon? Plan, it Is important to start planning your transition well before your separation date. Research your options and identify your goals that you would like to accomplish in your civilian life.

Did you know what you wanted to do when you got out? I was certain that my future lay in the electrical industry, and I aimed to secure a position with an organization that appreciates the value of military expertise and fosters a diverse and inclusive workplace culture.

What encouraged you to join the military? My decision to enlist in the military was driven by my desire to find a meaningful purpose in life and serve my country.
