Soulistic Hospice has worked to build strong relationships with the Southern Arizona Veterans Association and are contracted with the VA hospital.
Here are some ways we support our veterans:
Amanda was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Her desire to serve her country was shaped by the attacks on the Twin Towers on 9/11. Amanda joined the Air Force at 19 years old serving from 2007 to 2011 as an administrator ensuring the recognition of her peers. She left active duty, but still serves her country by supporting her active duty Air Force husband. Through her husband’s deployments Amanda has first-hand experience understanding the difficulties faced by today’s veterans. Since her arrival in Tucson in 2015, she received her Master’s in Social Work serving the hospice community, taking a special interest in honoring and serving the veterans she encounters.
VarNaNae grew up in New Hampshire in Foster Care. As a child she learned to train horses and horsemanship became her passion. She has worked in several zoos training lions, tigers, and sea lions.

She can relate to the challenges of veterans and wants to be of service.
