We are delighted to welcome veteran Melissa Chason of Saco, who has joined our Vet to Vet Maine team as new program director. She replaces Dawn Brennan-Daly, who held the post from July through December. Melissa served in the U.S. Army for six years, filling positions as unit human resources assistant and National Guard recruiter. She has an impressive background in assisting veterans to access benefits and resources as chapter president of Student Veterans of America, student adviser in veteran affairs at the University of Southern Maine, and adviser in USM’s Peer Advisor for Veterans Education. She also served as an intern with Easterseals in the Veterans Count program.
Melissa will be working directly with Vet to Vet volunteers and the veterans they visit to assist with referrals to services and benefits, problem-solving, and access to resources. You can contact Melissa by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling her at 207-579-4204, or stopping by the Vet to Vet office (please call to set up an appointment).
