Linda Franklin created Shining Service Worldwide™ in November 2010. She says, “it was destiny” The whole idea started to germinate when women serving in Afghanistan emailed her saying that they read Linda’s The Real Cougar Woman blog every day and how powerful they felt when they did. Shining Service Worldwide’s mission is to show appreciation and support to women currently serving in the military, military vets and military spouses. Too often our females in service fall through the cracks and don’t get the attention they deserve, or more importantly, they need.
Linda is visiting Military Mom Talk Radio this week to share new initiatives on the horizon for Shining Service Worldwide, specifically for transitioning women veterans.

Valerie Maine is a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology at Antioch University New England. Valerie received her bachelor’s degree in biopsychology from Oberlin College in 2003 and her master’s of science in clinical psychology from Antioch University New England in 2010. She has worked with veteran and active duty military populations at the United States Coast Guard Academy, the Providence VA hospital, and is currently in training at the William S. Middleton Memorial Hospital (Madison, WI) in the Addictions Disorders Treatment Program, where she works with veterans with a dual diagnosis of PTSD and substance use disorders. Valerie is currently working on her dissertation entitled “The Questionnaire of Post-Combat Couple Adjustment – A Preliminary Validation.” Her research focuses on the experience of couples coping with post-deployment and post-combat adjustment issues.
Valerie is the daughter of a Navy veteran and former United Nations staffer. Because of her father’s work, Valerie grew up in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Italy. Her father traveled often throughout her childhood and her family experienced many of the challenges and joys associated with this kind of lifestyle. These early experiences have shaped Valerie’s interest in post-deployment adjustment issues and are the inspiration behind her current research interests.
