In the Spring of 2018, more than 75 military spouses joined together at the Fort Belvoir, Virginia USO Warrior & Family Center to participate in the inaugural BOOST: Military Spouse Leadership Accelerator.
This accelerator was an intensive day of development that super-charged the leadership and management skills of the military spouses in attendance.
Boost was co-founded and designed by military spouses Cassaundra Martinez and Betsy Eves. They taught other military spouses the tools and mindsets needed to navigate the exciting and demanding life as a Military Family.
The program blended traditional coaching strategies with cognitive-behavioral techniques that put these high potential military spouses on the path to growth.
Betsy emceed the day, and the sessions facilitated by Cassaundra, Leadership Mentor and Coach Wendy Moomaw, Leadership Coach Kyle Burns, and Senior Spouse Holly Dailey, wife of the Sergeant Major of the Army.
By the end of the accelerator, the military spouses felt equipped to lead themselves, others, and their community.
The content energized them by facilitating connections with like-minded spouses and felt empowering them to embrace their role as leaders.
A journalist from DC Military Magazine attended BOOST and wrote a fantastic piece on the accelerator.
