Most recently, she supported the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Economic Communities Initiative (VECI) as the National Public Engagement Strategic Advisor. The goal of the VECI was to increase education and employment opportunities for veterans by bringing together local and national employers to coordinate services for veterans, service members and military families.
Ms. Painter developed the program’s mission and objectives and collaborated with internal and external stakeholders including Congress, agency partners, government and non-government organizations, non-profits, service members and veterans. She developed various strategies for connecting veterans and transitioning service members with local and regional competitive employment and education opportunities.
Drawing from the experience and successes of the VECI, she created a national collaborative called VeteransNCommand. The collaborative coalesces a national network of Executive Consultants committed to promoting the economic mobility of veterans and their families.
