The CMA Team
Chief Executive Officer, CMA Co-Founder
Chaunte’ N. Myers is no stranger to understanding military culture. Growing up as an Air Force dependent in a family steeped in military tradition, it is easy to understand her drive, determination and unyielding passion for serving the military and the military-affiliated community. As a U.S. Air Force OIF/OEF Veteran serving 15+ years, Chaunte’ has a deeply rich perspective regarding the trials and tribulations associated with multiple long-term deployments and can attest all too well to the sacrifices related to steadfastly maintaining such commitments.
Having honorably served in an Active Duty as well as Reserve capacity, she brings a realistic perspective and understanding with respect to addressing the functional challenges associated with transitioning from a military commitment and reintegrating into the civilian sector as a veteran.

The military family (members, spouses, families, etc.) consists of ordinary people, who do extraordinary things in the defense of our country. Through their service they define their commitment to values and selfless service and become, in themselves, a finite and valuable resource. I support CMA because they do two important things: 1-They fortify and equip great Americans to take an important step into another chapter of their story and 2- They partner with civilian industry to both educate and equip transitioning military members WHILE continuing to educate civilian industry of the value of our heroes!

Based on my first-hand observation, CMA has the most comprehensive program to help transitioning service-members secure meaningful employment following their service to the Nation. Their curriculum is chock full of helpful tips that can be quickly applied to a service-members situation.
