Laura Stradley has been named the new Executive Director of the Veterans Outreach Center.
Stradley is currently the Director of the Monroe County Veterans Service Agency. She previously worked as a Program Manager at Veterans Outreach Center from 2011-2012.
Since March 2014, Stradley has been on the VOC Board of Directors. She also served for eight years in the United States Army from 1996-2004.
“I have spent countless evenings and weekends advocating for the needs of veterans and I am eager to continue the great work the VOC does every day,” Stradley says. “Having worked in the veteran’s community for more than a decade, I have an unabashed passion for serving my brothers and sisters in arms.”
Stradley was an inductee of the New York State Senate Veterans Hall of Fame in 2015, and received the 2017 Vietnam Veterans Chapter 20 (VVA 20) Service Award this past spring.
Executive Director Todd Baxter resigned in April. Judge Patricia Marks is currently serving as Interim Executive Director.
Stradley will begin her role on September 6.
