Naomi Mathis joined the military to provide stability for herself and her children. When she was stationed in a combat zone, she found she needed to emotionally disconnect from her family in order to do her job. Upon returning home, Naomi was diagnosed with chronic Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and faced the challenge of reconnecting with her kids in a meaningful way. Her journey to regain a “normal” life inspired her to help make that transition for other veterans as smooth as possible. Naomi’s story reminds us that it is often only be going through difficult times ourselves that we can truly understand how to help others.
