In this eighth episode of Solidarity of Service, hosts Kevin Schmiegel and Sherman Gillums, Jr. are joined by military spouse and entrepreneur Serena West. West’s company, Westhouse, blossomed from a home hobby into an online boutique which aims to grow connections, communities, and businesses. West speaks about her journey to discover her own identity while also navigating the demands of being an Army wife and mother and her efforts to combat the widespread under- or unemployment of military spouses. She, Schmiegel, and Gillums also discuss how military families can better connect to their communities and the importance of pursuing that connection with intentionality.
