As an active duty member of the military since she graduated from college, women veterans’ issues are an important cause for Ariel. She now uses her military background—and previous stint at the Department of Defense—to inform her work on the Women Veterans Employment Initiative, where she helps female veterans get back into the workforce once they’ve finished their service to the country.
