Janna has always been one to give back. She has received much satisfaction from helping the Veteran community and this endeavor has rewarded her with a sense of purpose and patriotism. Her collaboration with Joe Corsino as Co-Founder of Welcome Home Resumes has been an amazing journey. In order to answer the question: “How can we help our Veterans?” Janna and Joe embarked on a quest to research the issue, understand the challenges of transitioning into civilian life and identify the areas of opportunity. This knowledge and understanding has resulted in the creation of a real and innovative solution to serve those who are and have already served.
