Family Voices: The Journey to a PhD: One Military Spouse’s Experience

February 17, 2020

Military spouses learn quickly that the road to professional credentials and employment is never a straight line. Today we speak to Dr. Belinda Hernandez and learn about the many sacrifices made on her journey towards her PhD. In addition, Dr. Hernandez shares insights from preliminary findings on a study she is conducting for the Elizabeth Dole Foundation which examines the impact on children that live in a home where a caregiver parent cares for a wounded, ill, or injured servicemember. Recommendations for future topics are welcome via email at podcast@ausa.org.
