LILA HOLLEY, THE VETERANS LIFE COACH®
This section is called About Me, so let me tell you about me… I’m a Veteran, Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend, and Entrepreneur in a nutshell. I am a retired Veteran who served 22 years in the US Army. I loved it and had many experiences that definitely helped shape who I am today. I enjoyed the opportunity to lived in multiple states in the Continental United States (CONUS) and several countries overseas, to include the paradise of Hawaii.
Like many of you, I deployed several times to foreign lands, leaving behind my spouse, children, and extended family. Thanks to the military I received some incredible training that prepared me for the increased responsibilities that come with leading troops, promotions, and of course, combat. I was blessed to meet some wonderful people and traveled to some marvelous lands I had only seen on a map. Again, all experiences that helped shape who I am and yet I would not change any of these experiences for anything.
I believe in life we experience things for our own personal growth as we head towards our greatness and to help others along the way. I learned a lot about myself while in the military but I learned even more upon my retirement. I am still learning and am making myself and my lessons learned available to the many other Service Members currently going through, preparing for, or still trying to make sense of their emotions as they navigate through the battlefield called Transition. As a Life Coach, specializing in helping Transitioning Military Members and their Families, I have been in your “boots” and I can relate to the concerns you have about the unknowns ahead of you. What you are feeling is normal and expected. The good news is you don’t have to maneuver alone… YOU now have a Battle Buddy.
