My name is Rolande S. Sumner and I am a retired US Army veteran and the CEO & Founder of Life After Service Transitional Coaching LLC®. I enlisted in the US Army National Guard in 1995 and retired in 2015. During my career I was a Admin Clerk, Heavy Vehicle Operator and Human Resources Generalist/Manager. I served as both a traditional National Guard Soldier and in an Active Guard/Reserve capacity and have been stationed in Massachusetts, South Carolina and Afghanistan.
My passion is empowering and inspiring women veteran to live full and authentic lives. My mission is to dramatically empower veterans to claim their autonomy, independence and personal accountability through individualized mentorship, coaching and training via the military transition to entrepreneurial process. My vision is to dramatically improve the military transition result within the veteran community on the micro, mezzo, and macro levels.
