Melissa Washington is an author, founder of the Women Veterans Alliance, and LinkedIn expert. She is a Navy veteran who transitioned to a career in business after having children while her husband remained on active duty. Her business experience gave her a comprehensive understanding of LinkedIn as it was gaining momentum, and she has become a renowned speaker and workshop facilitator since.
In 2014, she published her first book, Get Back to Work: Smart & Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make Your Next Career Move, and shortly after in 2015, she founded the Women Veterans Alliance — the largest professional women’s veterans organization.
