After serving in the U.S. Air Force as a combat service-member and Security Forces, Adrianne transitioned out of the military and into civilian life. During this time, she realized that veterans often make the transition with little or no structural support or guidance. This prompted her to spend over 11 years working in the veteran's benefit sector, including working in development, adjudication, training, presenting, quality assurance, and division management. In 2011, she started a corporation focusing on event travel management and corporate business travel. In 2017, she harnessed her experience as a veteran, benefits manager, and entrepreneur to found the Strategic Alliance for Veteran Integration with the goal of supporting every service member’s transition.   Adrianne Phillips Chairman, Board of Directors adrianne@savivets.com Book a Phone Conference  Strategic Alliance for Veteran Integration (SAVI) California Non-Profit Organization Office: (844) 400-SAVI (7284) Ext. 0Fax: (844) 400-7284 www.savivets.org
