Meet the team
Brandon is a Senior Consultant. His favorite thing to do when he isn’t helping Veterans is cook with his daughter, Savie. During his spare time, he loves hiking, golfing, and traveling. Unfortunately, Brandon also happens to be a Cowboys fan (we’re still trying to figure out why) — but you can definitely say he’s a patient person, given that the Cowboys haven’t won a SuperBowl in over 20 years.
Ritchie is a Senior Consultant who served 6 years in the Marine Corps. When he’s not helping other fellow Vets, he’s looking for rare coins or adding to his collection of over 200 watches (he says it’s a “healthy addiction,” but we’re still debating how healthy it actually is). Apparently, Ritchie isn’t scared of heights either because he’s hiked Mount Whitney, which is over 14,000 ft.
Nick is a Senior Consultant, and there’s no doubt he’s work-a-holic (it’s true, he’s always working), but only because he loves what he does — Helping Veterans change their lives and relieve some of their stress is truly rewarding for him. Besides being devoted to his job, Nick likes going shooting and ocean fishing — In fact, he’s caught about 100 tuna! He also loves going BMX racing with his daughter.
Austin is a Junior Consultant. You’d be surprised to know he’s actually a triplet and first-generation American! During his spare time, you’ll either find him traveling, at music festivals, or on the race track. Have you ever been snowboarding inside one of the tallest malls in the world (Mall of Emirates in Dubai)? Well, Austin has! (He was pretty stoked about this, so we had to mention it)
Eddy is a Junior Consultant and the “Sneakerhead” of the company (he takes pride in that). He’s a proud dad and says his life completely revolves around his 3-years-old son. They love to spend their time playing at the park or walking their German Shepard, Luna, at the beach. Eddy also spends a lot of time golfing (even though he’s not that great at it) — practice makes perfect, right?
Eric is a Junior Consultant and part-time “car nut.” He loves cars and is currently working on his 1985.5 Porsche 944. Eric also enjoys having fun with his 4 kids and is a huge dog lover — You’d never guess by looking at him that he has the cutest miniature chihuahua named Babies and pug named Ellie.
Kodie is a Junior Consultant and a mother of a “beautiful and brilliant” 3-year-old girl (she really is adorable). Kodie has a BS in biology and has a passion for science. She loves helping Veterans and didn’t realize it was her calling until she started working with VAC. During her spare time, she loves writing music, camping, fishing, and hiking — She’s climbed to the top of Hermit’s Peak, which is over 10,000 feet!
