133: "Veterans, especially women, want to continue serving outside of the military. It's just finding that thing that ignites you." Today's female veteran with Cat Corchado It's been 22 years since Cat Corchado transitioned out of the military as an Air Force veteran that served for 20 years. Although she has enjoyed most of her civilian life as a personal trainer, it's only been in the recent years where she's asked herself, "What's next?" It was during the heart of the pandemic when she realized it was time to start the Sisters in Service podcast. In sharing her journey as a podcaster, she reflects on her surprisingly quiet military transition 22 years ago, how she enjoys supporting people to 'be better in their bodies,' being a female veteran in today's society, and much more.
