Deputy Director, Southeast at Team Rubicon
Team Rubicon USA
NonProfit Executive, Veteran, Entrepreneur. Making a difference in people's lives every day through disaster response and veteran reintegration. Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams.
Team Rubicon’s primary mission is providing disaster relief to those affected by natural disasters, be they domestic or international. By pairing the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders, medical professionals, and technology solutions, Team Rubicon aims to provide the greatest service and impact possible.
Through continued service, Team Rubicon seeks to provide our veterans with three things they lose after leaving the military: a purpose, gained through disaster relief; community, built by serving with others; and identity, from recognizing the impact one individual can make. Coupled with leadership development and other opportunities, Team Rubicon looks to help veterans transition from military to civilian life.
Serving the Under-served Across the world, disasters are a part of life. No corner of the globe is spared from severe weather – be it crippling winter storms, catastrophic hurricanes, or unchecked wildfires. By focusing on under-served or economically-challenged communities, Team Rubicon seeks to makes the largest impact possible. Disasters represent a massive financial cost, and by providing immediate relief work, free of cost, TR aims to help communities begin recovery sooner.
Topics to Discuss:
For many men and women of our Armed Forces, the desire to serve their country and fellow man does not diminish once they take off the uniform.
Continued service helps us build stronger communities and supports transitioning veterans.
