    Bridget Cronin - Presenter bio to be posted

    Jennifer Diaz -  Chief Warrant Officer Three (CW3) Jennifer Diaz enlisted in the MN Army National Guard as a Personnel Administrative Specialist in December 1995 and was appointed as a Warrant Officer in August 2008.  She earned her Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology in March 2017 and her Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts with a Concentration in Management in August 2011. CW3 Diaz’s has held multiple assignments in her 22 year career.  In August 2008, she accepted her appointment to Warrant Officer One and moved to the Warrant Officer Recruiting Program with the Recruiting and Retention Battalion.  On March 24th 2013, Chief Diaz accepted the position of the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator for the MN Army and Air National Guard where she worked until May 2017 when she was assigned as the Labor Relations Specialist.  She is currently a serving member on MN Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA) Board of Directors.

    Angie Batica - Angie Batica served in the U.S. Army from June 1992 to February 1998. She experienced Military Sexual Traumas (MST) & developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Angie became an alcoholic and drug addict and added a long list of arrests. She experienced homelessness and joblessness. Once she got sober, she became a career volunteer and woman veteran advocate. Angie has a family, a business and mentors other women who’ve gone through similar experiences.

    Penny Nelson - During her 20 year tenure on active duty in the Navy (1994-2014), Penny experienced many cultural changes, starting with the Tail Hook fall out and ending with full integration of women into combat. After retiring from the Navy, Penny enrolled in the Alcohol and Drug Studies (ADS) program at Minnesota State University- Mankato which she will be graduating from in May 2018.  With her military background, the Fifth Judicial District Veterans Treatment Court was the logical choice for her required internship. The primary tasks during this internship include: restructuring client files and contacts with the Case Manager, revamping the Mentor Program (a unique component of the Veterans Treatment Court), and to complete a recidivism study specifically for the Veterans Treatment Court.

    Upon graduation, Penny hopes to continue this fulfilling work by focusing specifically on veterans and the unique challenges they present when they become involved in the criminal justice system.

    Kimberly Dobler- The mission of the Minnesota Women Veterans Program is to ensure women Veterans have equitable access to federal and state benefits and services. We respond to the gender specific needs of women Veterans and ensure that women Veterans are treated with dignity and respect. Our outreach events are geared to improve the awareness of available benefits, services and eligibility criteria for the women who served in the United States Armed Forces.
