Cici Clark leads the Combined Arms Veterans4HR.

Cici is an HR professional who is excited to connect with and meet other veterans participating in the Step Challenge.

Cici explains why she is pumped to be a Step Challenge team captain:

As a veteran and a SHRM member, it is time that we combine arms not just to show everyone that we can step it up but also that we want to support the cause. We want to help veterans get hired and join the workforce. We want to stop the unemployment and the underemployment of veterans. We can show them how easily we can do this! Let's do this!
