Paula Kemp - Navy Veteran/Founder/Board Member/President

I was a Combat Photographer who served in the United States Naval Reserves from 1998 - 2006. I was stationed in San Diego California, I am very proud of my military service. However, after my experience in the Middle East, and being raped during my service, I am now a Disabled Veteran living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST). I felt so alone and overwhelmed while going through the claims process with the Veterans Administration. I DID NOT want one more Female Veteran to feel this way if I could help it! I had an idea of starting a Non=Profit Organization where not only do we stand with Female Veterans while they go through the claims process, we walk with them towards HOPE, HELP, and HEALING. I am happily married, I have three children and four grandchildren who light up my life and show me every day how lucky I am.
