"Competency and skills-based education and training is a rapidly growing need, and there is no better professional talent pool more qualified to create that training than our global network of military spouse instructional designers.

"We're thrilled to have her join the FLG team," added Stacey. "FLG isn't your typical organizational culture - our clients and teammates have become lifelong friends and family, and it's that sense of trust, loyalty, and commitment within our community that continues to fuel FLG's growth. Elizabeth brings the perfect balance of strategic vision, tactical business prowess, and heart for our military spouse community to continue growing the FLG family."The last six years O'Brien has served in significant leadership roles as a Senior Director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring Our Heroes program, and as Chairwoman for the U.S. Small Business Administration's Advisory Committee on Veterans Business Affairs, the first military spouse to be appointed to that role.
