Wharwood is a veteran herself who lived within the military community for many years (as a dependent daughter, on active duty for over ten years, and as a dependent wife), and successfully transitioned from military life entrepreneurship.
Says Wharwood, "In many ways, running your own business is like taking the best of your military experiences and putting them to good use."
Wharwood points out that veteran-owned businesses are a critical resource for water and wastewater utilities to consider for their contracting needs.
"Veteran-owned businesses are the fastest-growing segment of the population starting businesses. We have a 68.1% success rate over the course of 10 years."
