Six years ago, my life changed. Again. My husband, a U.S. Army medic, was relocated to Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state and we moved our family from central California up the West Coast where I had no job or family.

Relocating at a moment’s notice to serve our country is part of the life we signed up for, and I wouldn’t change a thing, but I’m the first to recognize it also has its challenges.

It’s a similar story to thousands of other military families across the U.S. That’s why I feel fortunate to be part of a company that appreciates and values the skills of military veterans and spouses. As a customer service team lead for Amazon’s Virtual Customer Service, I spend every day talking to new people and building relationships with my team. Despite not having a physical office, I enjoy a sense of community and camaraderie with my peers around the country who also work from home.

I am so excited to hear that Amazon is creating more than 5,000 new part-time Virtual Customer Service roles as part of its plans to add more than 30,000 part-time roles across its customer fulfillment network over the next year. These roles offer military spouses like me and countless others employment opportunities no matter where they are located.

I encourage interested candidates to visit to learn more or apply online for a virtually located role.
