Lena Geronimo said: “As a veteran of the United States Marine Corps my duty was supply management. Post basic training I was stationed at Camp Geiger for MCT, Marine Combat Training. During training, I grew very sick and was dropped from my training platoon to the Medical Rehab Platoon to get better. During this time – five months in – I unfortunately experienced Military Sexual Trauma. My duty here was to be trained, not be traumatized. After my experience ironically I was placed in Separations due to a development of a condition in my chest called Costochondritis. I was told I would be a liability and was separated from service at 7 months 9 days. Since I was not able to continue my duties I parted ways with my “Red Stripe” dream & found a new dream in Mass Communications. Although my time was cut short I take many military qualities into life & work such as leadership, teamwork, knowledge, enthusiasm & my entrepreneurial spirit.
My successes in business has been achieved on many fronts. First in my relentless advocacy for my fellow veterans where I have created a pop up boutique – or as the Long Beach VA knows it a “Pop Tique” program – dedicated to provide free clothing, shoes and accessories to women veterans to help them recapture their confidence and self esteem post-trauma.
Second, My success in the local business communities has come through the utilization of my media broadcasting profession, where I assist small businesses with promoting their brand to an international audience. This monthly event called the “Invent Yourself” Business Networking & Marketing was created to market small businesses during hours of operation from select businesses to encourage networking amongst business owners, Veterans in Business & generate additional revenue for the hosting business, while at the same time providing attending customers and local listeners exposure to new brands. This event has been a success for three years and running!
Finally, “Artist Vibe Live” is about my commitment to the arts, where I provide a platform for working artist in a full video and broadcast production that gives the artist much needed exposure for their careers. The finished productions and broadcast recordings are then provided to them at a reasonable cost for their marketing and branding purposes. These are just three of my successful business services.”
Lena Geronimo brings a great deal of experience and wisdom to Fields to Boardrooms which will be on sale in the first quarter of 2019.
