At the National Military Family Association, we believe in engaging with military families. That’s why we’re on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. These platforms are an avenue for us to listen to what military families have to say, provide you with important resources and alert you to news that could affect your military family. While we use a general twitter account (@military_family – please follow us if you aren’t already), we thought it would be nice to introduce you to some of the faces that make up our Association and encourage you to connect with them too!
Below are a few women you should “meet”—send them a tweet, introduce yourself and let the relationship building begin!
@NMFAJoyce – As our Executive Director, Joyce leads our Association. Passionate about being an advocate for military families, she’s always “on the ground” connecting with families to understand their needs and concerns. She focuses on posting news and events that are relevant to military families as well as noting our work as an advocate on their behalf.
Spoken like a true leader, Joyce’s quote to live by? “Lead, follow, or get out of the way!”
@NMFAChristina – As Volunteer Services Director, Christina is immersed in working with people who want to help others. She tweets about activities and events we participate in but her main focus is demonstrating how wonderful our Volunteers are and why it’s something you should consider doing.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
@NMFA_Amanda – A proud Army spouse with two young boys, Amanda is our Content Manager for MyMilitaryLife and uses her twitter account to build relationships with other spouses and share information that can help them and their families.
As a spouse who’s had to move several times in the past few years, she stands by the quote “don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
@NMFAKatie - As the Government Relations Manager, Katie tweets about our Association’s advocacy work. Tweets include Congressional hearings of importance to military families and retweets of the work of the Government Relations Director and Deputies. She’s a USMC spouse stationed at Twentynine Palms, CA.
Katie doesn’t have a favorite quote but enjoys reading leadership philosophies from working moms and looks for work-life balance tidbits.
@NMFA _Eileen – As a Navy spouse with two children, Eilieen shares information that could potentially affect her family, or other military families. She serves in the Government Relations department and acts as an advocate for ALL military families.
Spoken like a true advocate, Eileen’s quote of choice? “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Are you following us on Twitter? If not, now’s the time! Connect with us, share your stories, concerns and let us know how we can better serve you!
