Hi! My name is Laura and I am in the Air Force. I am recently divorced and I am looking for fun things to do in the area. I am looking forward to meeting new people and this seems like a great idea!
I am available weeknights and weekends.
I like to work out and stay active. I run, do crossfit, hike, kayak, etc. I also like to volunteer, read, do arts and crafts, go shopping, and try new restaurants.
As a military member, I am an avid supporter of veteran's organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project. I also support projects like Habitat for Humanity and the Boys and Girls Club. I am not too familiar with the other volunteer opportunities for local organizations, but I am up for volunteering for anything. I think it's important to get out there and support and give back to your community. Also, as young professional women, i feel it is important to get out there and support women's groups.
I feel as though I am in a good place career wise, although I still haven't decided if I want to stay in the military. I am a Paralegal currently so if I did get out, I have gained the skills necessary to start a successful career in the outside world. I am working towards a Bachelor's Degree in Human Resources Management (currently the 10 year plan). Part of the reason I haven't decided if I am getting out is I'm not sure if I want to continue to move all over or be able to settle down in one place (probably my hometown of Boston!). I am hoping I will meet someone one day and have a family but I have learned that it is important to focus on myself and the right person will come along eventually.
I am currently a Paralegal for the Air Force.
Yeah, you should try to make it to one of the meetups coming up. I've made some friends through this group. Some girls network and it's also good for that too.
Hi Laura, welcome to the group!
