How it began.


Once upon a time...

One lived FOREVER in the SAME place, with the SAME job, the SAME schools, the same address... 

"That happens all the time," said no military spouse ever.

How it began.


Once upon a time...

One lived FOREVER in the SAME place, with the SAME job, the SAME schools, the same address... 

"That happens all the time," said no military spouse ever. 

 

A new story was written. 

This journey began in our Nation’s capital with orders to move again.  This time to Germany….again. Drawing upon our Founding Father’s determination to change the world as they knew it D.R.E.A.M.S.® was born.  America’s Career Force is an organization by military spouses for military spouses, connecting career-minded military spouses with businesses across the America.

LEIGH SEARL, JD
FOUNDER & PRESIDENT

Leigh is a persistent advocate for change whose determination to realize this change led to the creation of America's Career Force.  

Leigh is a University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate in Behavioral Sciences and Pre-Law.  Leigh has been a military spouse for 14 years and moved 11 times but through it all Leigh has continued to retain a professional focus wherever the Army sent her.

Leigh was lobbying at the local, state, and federal levels in her home state of Wisconsin when she met and fell in love with an Officer in the Army.  Before she knew what happened, she was married to the love of her life and living the "dream" in Germany. Sort of.

Leigh was newly married, in Germany and he was living the "dream" in Iraq. Leigh found herself overqualified, underemployed, and selling power tools (impressive right?) across Europe. She wanted to work, found a way, and made a lasting impression with the company.

Then came the orders to Fort Leonard Wood, MO. That move set the stage for a new journey in Leigh's life. Knowing that she wanted more, Leigh persisted and leaned in.

Leigh passionately pursued her dream to obtain her Juris Doctor. The journey was not without obstacles or challenges. Having a second child, during a deployment- easy. Saying goodbye to husband, right after giving birth- no problem. Nursing a 10 day old newborn during law school finals- cakewalk. Hardly. And yet, Leigh persevered.

Leigh graduated from Concord Law School with her Juris Doctor, remotely. Resiliency truly is at the core of the military spouse.

Leigh spent many years working remotely and has a long record of success negotiating virtual platforms.  She has built a successful career facilitating real estate transactions and advocating on behalf of her clients. As founder of America's Career Force, she is using her business savvy and advocacy skills to help other military spouses find long-term, remote career opportunities. Leigh understands the challenges businesses face pursuing a remote workforce and has developed the resources and tools to overcome those challenges. 

When she is not focused on new projects, Leigh is enjoying precious moments with her family, mastering her culinary talents, visiting historic places near our Nation's Capital, strength training and fervently avoiding all cardio activities.
