About Jo Anne
I was in the Army from Dec 1996 to about March 2005. In that time I was apart of the Operation Iraqi Freedom conflict, traveling abroad overseas from 2003-2005, in Iraq. Since Ive returned home Ive been in the Financial, Mortgage and Banking industry, until the last year (2013) which was a final layoff with the last bank I was with. Unable to find employment, I decided to complete my education. I attended Strayer University and obtained by Bachelor's in Business Administration in June 2014. I am now looking for Employment with the Federal Government, VHDA, CSX, or Altria/Philip Morris.. Also I seek to be able to purchase a 20+ Apartment Facility to house homeless Veterans in my area and eventually across the United States with the Financial Monthly aid and assistance given by the Veterans Affairs. Also my passion lies in Writing (Books, Movies, Sitcoms, Etc.), Voice Overs (Want Government Contracts) and Public Speaking. A major problem I have is my credit, in which I do not have the money to pay for a legitimate and proper credit repair service in a prompt fashion, also needing grant writing assistance in order to obtain more funding for my veterans to establish a rehabilitation program for them to find jobs, get their financial lives together and live on their own in society. again, with minimal support. Besides this I would like to open a few Small Businesses: 1). A German Fine Chain Restaurant, 2). A Discount Designer Clothing Boutique, and 3). An Entertainment Oasis (live shows, Etc.) to bring profit back in to the city of Richmond, Virginia. I am in need of mentorship, capital, start up funds, grants and business partnerships, as soon as possible.
