Meet Brennen, Beneficiary of The John & Bernadette Heenan Veterans at Work Fund
Brennen is an Army veteran who knows how to overcome obstacles while giving back
“Since I was a little girl, I’ve always really enjoyed working with my hands and I knew I wanted to be a technician. I look forward to learning everything I can and being able to move up the ranks of master technician. My ultimate goal is to one day own my own shop and getting certified is going to help tremendously with those plans.”
Overcoming challenges and inspiring others to do the same
Finding ways to give back
Brennen understands how important it is to be involved and give back to her community. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season she makes sure to volunteer at a local homeless shelter.
Being a single mom, Brennen cannot live on campus. Paying for rent and school expenses makes it difficult for Brennen to make ends meet.
