From Veterans, To Veterans: Mary Collins & Joshua Kuan

CareerSource Pinellas proudly recognizes the honorable service of Mary Collins and Joshua Kaun.  Mary served 4 years in the U.S. Army as a 75 Delta Personnel Record Specialist.  Her bravery and sacrifice have given us all the freedoms that we take for granted daily.  Thank you, Mary.

Her service did not end with the military.  Mary has been with CareerSource for 20 years and is a proud member of our DVOP team.  Her 2 decades of experience and wisdom have enabled her to effectively help veterans in the Tampa Bay Area better their lives after their time in the service.

Joshua shares Mary’s passion to help others.  He has served 10 years with the U.S. Navy as Petty Officer Second Class.  We are truly grateful for your service and thank you for the sacrifices you have made to keep us free and safe.

After his time in the service, Joshua joined CareerSource Pinellas as a Local Veterans Employment Representative (LVER).  In the one year he has been with the company, he has found a way to truly exemplify the Veterans Services Team through his hard work and determination.

Over the past few weeks, Mary has been assisting a veteran that has been unemployed for the past few years due to having a traumatic brain injury. She had passed his resume off to  Joshua,  and he went over to speak with the hiring manager at Dick’s Sporting Goods.  After discussing the services that CareerSource has to offer, the manager took the veteran’s resume and let Joshua know they would be hiring for the holiday season.  The veteran was called in for an interview and was offered a position as a Sales Associate.  This collaboration of effort between both DVOP and LVER deems the program successful.

Thank you both for your collaborative and tireless efforts to assist our local veterans in bettering their lives.
