“My passion is to propel women veterans forward by giving them the tools, strategies and moral support needed to make the smooth transition to civilian life”

Airial W. Dandridge, a Certified Life & Veteran Development Coach, is the founder of The Veteran Woman, LLC., a group dedicated to supporting and empowering female veterans as they transition from soldier to civilian life.

Dandridge, like those she serves, is a 12-year Army veteran that once struggled to find direction during her own transition period. Held back by a lack of direction, limited resources, and personal trauma resulting from domestic violence, sexual harassment and military sexual assault, she felt alone trying to find her place in the world.

It wasn’t until she stumbled upon her own life coach that she found the direction and personal determination she needed to move forward, eventually creating this very program.

Today, she teaches women how to use their military experience as an advantage to both their personal and professional lives; especially those who don’t fit the traditional mom or 9-to-5 roles.

More than that, Dandridge works closely with women to help them establish clear goals, discover motivations, and create plans of action to live a life they love. Her coaching style is considered solution-focused, transformational and comprehensive; all backed by a passion to help others find passion, purpose and pleasure beyond PTSD and depression.

Dandridge hopes to not only help reignite each person’s passion in life, but to also rejuvenate their minds and bodies so they can push towards the future with a clear mind full of purpose.

Dandridge was an active duty soldier in the United States Army for 12 years. While enlisted, she served as a Multimedia Illustrator (25M), Information Systems Analyst (25B) and carried special duties as an Equal Opportunity representative and Sexual Assault/Harassment Response & Prevention (SHARP) advocate.

Since that time, she has become a Certified Solution-Focused Life Coach through the Universal Coach Institute, as well as a Certified Veteran Development Coach (CVDC) through BlueRio Strategies & Hawkeye Collaborative.
