Through Military Sexual Trauma (MST) Research, Social Innovation, and Survivor Initiatives, we’re bringing positive lasting change for service members no matter where they are in the world by using data to focus our efforts on prevention and elimination.
My name is Diandra Poe, I am a veteran, military wife, mother, and servant leader. I answered the call to serve my country when I was 31 years old. I arrived at my first duty station in December 2011 and within 90 days was assaulted in my home by another service member. While justice was served, it was not swift and without cost. My career hung in the balance and the retaliation and toll of the event, played a major role in me ending my profession as an officer before I wanted to. The one thing this tragedy did provide, was a clear path to healing and helping my battles.
