TERRI BARNES "MARCH MILITARY SPOUSE INFLUENCER" PAGE 14 AMY SCHOFIELD "CONQUERING RESUME OBSTACLES" PAGE 26 Without Melissa St. Clair, Marine Corps (retired) spouse and her virtual assistant business, Paper Chaser (paperchaser- biz.com), my own business wouldn't be where it is today. She offers incredibly affordable virtual assistant services, including email marketing, project as- sistance and email support, which allows me to focus on what I do best — write re- sumes! The other really neat thing about Paper Chaser is that it offers a product called VA Business Start Up Tools, which can help other military spouses launch their own virtual assistant business! Amy Schofield provides resume development and job search strategies to job seekers of various backgrounds and experience levels from around the world. As an active-duty military spouse, she actively helps transition- ing veterans and military spouses reach their career goals. Amy serves as the Resume Expert for the National Military Spouse Network and holds Academy Certified Resume Writer and Academy Certified Profile Writer credentials. H Books usually top all my lists of favorite things: favorite gifts to give or receive, favorite companion on a rainy afternoon. So, naturally, books are also my favorite military spouse products. The literary talent in our community spans many genres: novels by Siobhan Fallon, Kathleen Rodgers, and Andria Williams; poetry by Lisa Stice and Jehanne Dubrow, devotionals by Sara Horn and Brenda Pace; historic fiction by Jocelyn Green, and so many more. Books by military spouses connect us, they share our stories with the world, and they reveal the heart and intellect, the richness and depth of our community. Terri Barnes enjoys books, coffee, cold days by the fire, and her family, preferably all at the same time. She is the senior editor for Elva Resa Publishing, and the author of "Spouse Calls: Messages From a Military Life." She and her husband, Mark, a retired Air Force chaplain, have three grown children. SWEET PINEAPPLE SHOP sweetpineappleshop.com Air Force Spouse co-owned "Love this couple and all they do for our community. The Sweet Pineapple Shop is a wonderful go to shop for the unique gifts for that special occasion, awards, or recognitions. You will not be sorry for gifting any of their unique gifts." – Carol TINY TROOPS SOCCER tshq.bluesombrero.com/tinytroops Marine Corps spouse owned "...a great atmosphere for children to learn soccer skills and more just by playing and having fun! There are so many locations which means there's a constant in their lives when moving is rough." – Jillian WANT TO CHIME IN? Follow us on Facebook!
