Dog Tag Fellowship

I’ve been offered a fellowship to the 2017 cohort of Dog Tag Inc.!


Dog Tag Inc. Fellowship Program and Bakery in Washington DC supports the military to civilian workforce transition through the development of professional skills, knowledge and behaviors for success. The program begins July 5th!

Fellows like me gain experiential learning by participating in a working rotation through storefront and non-profit positions. We’ll learn every aspect of a small business, including operations, staff management, product creation, customer service, and marketing. Successful completion of the program includes a Certificate in Business Administration from Georgetown University.

A  History

If it hadn’t been for Spoke’n Polite Co., these other ideas probably would never have taken shape. A new website I built explains why thoughtful conversation about religion & politics is so important.
