Today we’re speaking with Air Force Veteran Dana Forester, President and COO of JDog Carpet Cleaning. Dana speaks about her time in the Air Force and her transition to the civilian world. She talks about how JDog recognized the struggle many Veterans faced when acclimating back to civilian life and how they decided to do something to help the other Military families as this new stage of life begins. That’s when they committed themselves to create entrepreneurship opportunities exclusive for Veterans and their families. Are you a Veteran who is transitioning to Entrepreneurship?

Before joining JDog in 2016, she worked as an Emergency Services Dispatcher. JDog Brands is committed to hiring Veterans and Military family members, including among its own leadership team. Forester fits both criteria. She served in the Air Force for four years and belongs to a very small community of women who have served as a Munitions Systems Specialist -- a predominantly male field. She comes from a strong legacy of military service, including her uncle, Ken Baldwin, who was an original member of the ‘Band of Brothers.’ Learn More about JDog - JDogBrands.com Join the conversation on our Facebook!
