SPONSORSHIP COORDINATORS

We are assembling a team of sponsorship coordinators across the USA to help drive our initiatives by arranging donations and developing strategic partnerships. 

 

The primary mission for our sponsorship coordinators is to generate donations that will enable our foundation to establish small businesses nationwide that will be veteran-operated and veteran-owned.

After two deployments to Iraq, Mr. Krutzsch finished his Army career in 2011 at Aberdeen Proving Ground. He would later earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Sport Management from Wilmington University and now works tirelessly for veterans. Chris and his wife, AshLeigh, reside in New Jersey with their three children. Like our other sponsorship coordinators, we are lucky to have his talents on our team to help build our foundation nationwide.

Julia S. earned a Doctorate of Philosophy in Clinical Health Science from the University of Mississippi Medical Center. She has been actively engaged in the study of how to keep open conversations and how to support balanced differences in opinions to benefit all. Improving lives and the ability to stay focused and productive can mean a lot for so many who have served in the military.

Julia believes in providing the vulnerable with innovative solutions for their positive transformations and is now involved with our foundation to help pursue these key objectives.
