Behind the Scenes
Military Women's Collective (MWC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering and equipping women veterans to transition successfully from military service to civilian life. Our organization was founded in 2021 by Marina Rabinek, a Navy Veteran who believes that the key to finding success post-military service lies in finding your purpose and career mentorship.
We provide free resources to help women veterans transition into civilian life, including career mentorship and training, networking & outdoor therapeutic events, and mental health support. Our mission is to provide the tools and resources to help our women veterans thrive in their post-military lives.
We strive to empower our sisters in arms by creating a safe and supportive environment to grow, learn and build lasting relationships.
Motivated, energetic and fully of new ideas! Marina helped me navigate LinkedIn so I can be more efficient and productive in future career searches. Just when I thought I was hitting every target possible, Marina introduced me to new ideas, possibilities, and paths to get there. If you need a Super Connector or want to know how to better connect with people in your desired industries, she is the one to help!
I really appreciated Marina’s authenticity and enthusiasm. We had a wonderful conversation where she helped guide me to further resources that will help cultivate my passion to help fellow Veterans. I’m highly encouraged and thankful to my new mentor and friend.
Where to begin? Marina is an absolute delight. She is so multi-faceted when it comes to advice/guidance. Her profile indicates where she has specific strengths, but that is augmented by her own personal energy and optimism. She can give you some super critical information about transition processes in a variety of ways, and concurrently make you feel better about life in general! Truly a great resource and testament to the quality that Veterati utilizes!
Marina IS a SUPER CONNECTOR! Truly committed to veteran success and networking. Thank you so much for your resources and insight! Every call with Marina unlocks more and more resources and perspective. She’s most definitely the #superconnector! She’s realistic, she knows EVERYONE, and she can think of so many different solutions to any issue. I’m such a fan of her, and I’m looking forward to another call with her. She’s incredible!
Where do I start, it felt like talking to a long time friend. Marina is absolutely amazing and very ready and willing to jump right in and help. (Did I mention that she custom made my LinkedIn background?). She gave me a lot of resources, and walked me step by step on how to search for roles on different sites, and connecting to the people who would be resourceful from the company. I made a friend and I'm excited to have her in this journey.
Marina is the epitome of the classic Roger Staubach quote “There’s no traffic on the extra mile”. She’s dynamic, extremely knowledgeable on so many aspects of the transition process, and ready to impart the knowledge with humility and verve. If you’re transitioning - I highly recommend a conversation with Marina to help you with the things you don’t know that you don’t know… If she doesn’t have the answer, and she will 9/10 times, she’ll know who to call to get you the answers. Thank you Marina!
Marina was incredible from the beginning of the conversation! Her encouragement of rebranding myself in the digital space and increasing my digital footprint was incredible. She is both inspiring and easy to talk to. I loved her energy, sense of humor and resources. I would encourage anyone from anywhere to talk with Marina. I have already booked my second call!
