Today’s installment of My Why features a V Team story from our Good mailbox. Shalana Robbins, a Director of Business/Government Operations in VBG, continues to be not only a trailblazer for women of color and women in tech, but also someone who leads by her selfless example, volunteering her time to help empower military veterans in Salt Lake City.
Her dedication to helping those who serve is personal, as her father, husband and grandfather are all U.S. Air Force veterans. Thanks, Shalana, for all you do for those who served our country.
