The program will be led by Austin Phillips who is a seasoned veteran of both the Air Force and Army dedicated to aiding veterans in transition.  Mr. Phillips is the Director of Ardent Lives, Inc., a not-for-profit that supports civilian transition with a holistic approach.  His varied experiences and intimate understanding of veteran’s needs, shaped by his own journey, render him a compassionate and informed advocate and educator.  He is here to share, learn, laugh a little and make a difference, one veteran at a time!
