Maybe you've already PCSed or getting ready to and wondering how to build up a new village or build one for the first time. The number one thing that military families need is a local support network. So how do you get started and where do you go for help? I talk to Jennifer Borgstrom of Military Bridge about how to get connected to a new duty station and how locals can help military families feel more at home sooner.

Jennifer Borgstrom is a proud military spouse and founder of  Jennifer lives in Hampton Roads, Virginia with her two kids, two dogs and husband.  She is a Minnesotan at heart born and raised.  Jennifer moved away from the cold to never return to attend college at The University of Arizona where she majored in Business.  She met her husband while going through pilot training in Tucson which led to 2 years of long distance dating.  After getting married, Jennifer and her husband moved to Hampton Roads area to finish up his military career....after 24 years in the Air National Guard, she jokes she is still waiting for him to finish up.  
Jennifer worked in Pharmaceutical sales before having children.  Once she had kids she chose to be a stay at home mother.  With her children getting older and the realization of a void in resources in the military community she launched in 2012.  MilitaryBridge has kept her busy over the last 6 years and it has been very rewarding experience for her.  Her family loves the Hampton Roads area and enjoys raising their children there.  In her little free time, she enjoys golfing, exercise, cooking, boating and of course spending time with her family.
