2015 Women of Worth Honoree,Teri Kelsall Founded The Jonas Project to Support Veteran Entrepreneurs

 

Teri Kelsall was recognized by L'Oréal Paris and Points of Light as a 2015 Women of Worth  honoree for her extraordinary efforts helping veteran entrepreneurs on their quest to become tomorrow’s high-impact business leaders. The mother of a fallen Navy SEAL, Teri understands the drive and potential in U.S. veterans. "The people we've had the opportunity of knowing are truly incredible individuals who work hard and want more for their families than just getting a paycheck," says Kelsall, whose nonprofit organization helps veterans to start their own businesses. "They want to be responsible for building their futures and giving back to their country. They're willing, they're capable and we are going to give them that opportunity." Learn more about Teri’s story.

If you know a woman who works to create lasting and significant change in her community, nominate her to be one of the 2016 Women of Worth.
