Wendy Jackson, Director of EXPANSIA’s Talent Division, TalentWerx, stated, “EXPANSIA is truly committed to hiring and professionally growing our military community. Being a military spouse to an active-duty airman, I started my journey with EXPANSIA as a part-time employee, unknowing what my future would hold. Enduring multiple spouse deployments and permanent change of stations, EXPANSIA not only supported my family and me, but they also invested in me. I am now a full-time employee leading one of EXPANSIA’s divisions and a proud member of their Military Veterans and Affairs Team. As a distributed employee company, I am at peace knowing I can continue to work with EXPANSIA in any location our military change of stations takes our family. I am humbled by their dedication to those who serve and honored to be a part of such a remarkable team!”
