Desma served over 14 years in the U.S. Navy as a Logistics Specialist managing areas such as supply, finance, accounting and budgeting while achieving the rank of Chief Petty Officer and leading a team of 65 sailors. After retiring from the Navy, Desma had no confidence in finding work as a civilian. She came across the Easterseals Bob Hope Support Program when searching for resources.
Desma now works as a civilian in asset management for the U.S. Navy.
“Thank you for helping me in not just finding a job, but checking on me when I didn’t think the job hunt would get better. I look back at my original resume and can’t imagine how I devalued the experience I had to offer a company. I would direct any veteran to Easterseals because if I never had picked up the phone to seek out your help, I don’t know that I would have the courage I have now. I believe a great career is possible again.”
