032: Assisting veterans and military spouses with career readiness through mentorship with Lucie Piper
Lucie is the Program Manager for the Military Spouse Mentoring Program at ACP, a national non-profit that assists veterans and military spouses with career readiness through mentorship. She is a New York native but relocated frequently to follow her husband’s 9-year career in the Marine Corps, which took their young family from coast to coast. Like most military spouses, her career has been diverse by necessity and includes roles such as Hair Stylist, Fitness Director, Military Family Readiness Advisor and Program Director at the corporate offices of a health and wellness company. Following her husband’s transition from the military back into civilian life, Lucie obtained a Masters of Social Work with a focus on Military & Veteran Families from Stony Brook University. She also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Health and Wellness. Lucie now resides in NY with her husband, three school-aged children and their two pets.
