Military Spouses Move Mountains, Meet Ciara Skiles
Military spouses will figure it out.
I have always heard the saying “if you want to get something done, ask a busy mom.” Military spouses are possibly the busiest human beings on the planet, whether kids are in the picture or not.
Milspouses run the show. The service member works constantly, never seeming to keep regular hours, leaving for frequent TDY (otherwise translated as “business trips”), training events, and dreaded deployments that last for months on end.
In leading the household during frequent absence of their military counterpart, milspouses pick up a lot of handy skills along the way. I believe I’m going to change this old saying of “ask a busy mom” to “ask a military spouse” after talking with Ciara.

“What benefit do you believe military spouses bring to the workforce?”
I asked Ciara the question, “What benefit do you believe military spouses bring to the workforce?” Here is her answer:
“Military spouses make the most amazing employees and co-workers. We are natural team players, networkers and have an innate grit and grace to us that enables us to handle even the toughest of situations. I often say that if you want something done, put it in front of a group of military spouses because there’s no mountain we won’t move to make it happen.” ~ Ciara Skiles
