Staff Sergeant, Army
SERVICE: 15 years

Gina Chang Evans was enjoying life in the military when she suffered a painful back injury while deployed to Iraq in 2016. Suddenly she was facing retirement. And because of her injury, she would not be able to continue working as a medical laboratory specialist. “What the Army trained me for suddenly wasn’t going to be a good fit,” she said. The O2O program helped her adjust to her new reality, and the field orientation sessions energized her about a new career path in computer technology. “It completely opened up a passion I didn’t know I had,” she said.

After completing her IT training and certification, Gina accepted a full-time position as a Systems Applications and Products developer with Accenture.
