Stoyanova comes from a family of veterans, including her grandfather who served in World War II. She is dedicated to helping and serving veterans and uses her experience from an employment agency to help reduce the number of jobless vets. The goal of MSHV is to grow and expand its programming to accommodate the increasing demand for its services, which are offered to veterans and their families throughout DuPage County as well as those living in DeKalb, Grundy, Kane, Kendall, LaSalle, and Will counties. To date, 82 individuals have been assisted by the Veterans Employment Program including 78 veterans and four of their family members. Stoyanova pointed out that some veterans have been displaced from their jobs due to changes in the workforce. "They often are transitioning from one type of job or career to another and we help market their existing skills to a new career. We aim to support and provide guidance to these veterans who are unemployed and underemployed," said Stoyanova.
