Courtney Wilson didn't follow a typical path to the military. After completing her undergrad studies as a creative writing major at Wellesley College, she joined the army and became an engineer. After serving for seven years, she left as a Captain and soon began working on her foundation, DropZone For Veterans, while going to school to get her MBA. Wilson's organization connects veterans and their families with curated resources so they can thrive, not just survive, after the military. Through a lot of hard work, she and her team have created a database of over 116,000 benefits, resources and opportunities; and have served over 10,000 veterans so far.
