Digital Works Student Spotlight: Kristin R.

Fort Campbell, Ky (October 26, 2020) – Kristin R. has been a military wife for seven years. She and her husband have two children, a 4-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter. They came to Fort Campbell about a year ago following stints at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C., and in Fort Rucker, Alabama. They also spent two year in Illinois, where her husband went through the Green to Gold program at University of Illinois Chicago to obtain a master’s degree and become an officer.

“I am interested in working from home because I want to be able to be available to my children when they need me, and I want the flexibility to volunteer in their classrooms, go on field trips with them and just be able to be involved in their activities as they grow up,” said Kristin. “With the uncertainty of the Army, you never know when your spouse might have to be gone for training or deployment, so I want to be able to be flexible with the ever-changing schedule of Army life.”

Kristin heard about Digital Works through a post on a Fort Campbell Army Wives page and was interested in learning more, as she had considered working from home in the past.

She explored the Digital Works website and talked to a former graduate who highly recommended the program. Since starting the class, Kristin has truly loved learning about remote jobs and the training is setting her up for success when she begins to look for jobs soon.

“I am so glad I stumbled upon that Facebook post and that I looked more into the Digital Works program,” said Kristin. “I highly recommend this program for any military spouse who wants to have the flexibility to work from home.”

“One of the biggest benefits of this class is the resources you gain. Not only do you learn valuable training skills but you will have Jess in your back corner to help you through job placements,” she said. “You also gain a Digital Works family of all former graduates who have experienced the same training as you and are there to support each other!”
