Website

Vivian Greentree, Ph.D., joined First Data as a Senior Vice President and Head of Military and Veteran Affairs in February 2014. In this role Vivian created First Data Salutes, a company-wide military engagement strategy to provide the military community with access to career opportunities and best-in-class education resources, while offering premier business solutions to veteran-owned businesses. Before joining First Data, Vivian helped to found Blue Star Families, the largest chapter-based military support organization in the country, where she most recently served Director of Research and Policy.

While at BSF, Vivian created and oversaw BSF’s groundbreaking Military Family Lifestyle Survey, which examines a broad spectrum of issues affecting modern-day military families. The survey was referenced in Presidential Directive-9 “Strengthening Our Military Families,” the precursor to the Obama Administration’s Joining Forces initiative and continues to be cited in military policy discussions nationally. She is also the creator of the Blue Star Spouse Employment Toolkit, the first of its kind military spouse employment resource, written and tested based on the unique career needs of military spouses. The Spouse Employment Toolkit has since evolved into a suite of military spouse professional development initiatives known as Blue Star Careers, including educational, employment, and mentoring programming and has been adapted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce into an online military spouse resume engine, Career Spark.

Before joining BSF, Vivian served as a Supply Corps officer in the Navy, on active duty and in the Reserves. After serving in the Navy, she used her G.I. Bill to attain her Ph.D. in Public Administration and Urban Policy from Old Dominion University, where she earned several awards, including Ph.D. Outstanding Student of the Year, Phi Kappa Phi, The Pindur and the Ted Constant Scholarships, and a University Fellowship. She holds a masters degree from the University of Maryland University College and undergraduate degrees in Journalism and Public and International Affairs from the University of Georgia.

Vivian’s research on civic engagement, the military community, and public policy has been published in peer-reviewed journals like Public Administration Review and the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, along with mainstream media outlets. She has appeared as a subject matter expert on panels, advisory boards, conferences, and national media outlets, including CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, and NPR. And, she is a Senior Research Fellow of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University. In 2012, Vivian was named a Daily Point of Light by the Points of Light Institute for recognition of her volunteer work and a “Top 40 Under 40” alumni by the University of Georgia’s Alumni Association.

In 2013, she was appointed to the University of Georgia’s Alumni Association Board of Directors and designated as an Ally Spouse by the Military Partners and Families Coalition. A strong supporter of civic engagement, Vivian serves on the selection committee for the prestigious Lincoln Awards and is the Quality of Life Sub-Committee chair for the Virginia Military Advisory Council, a position she was appointed to by Governor Terry McAuliffe in 2014. Vivian is married to a Naval Officer and they have two young boys, ages 9 and 12.

Vivian’s definition of success:

personal success is rooted in knowing each day I’ve used my skills and my resources to help at least one person and then get to go home to a family where I know we are raising our children to have empathy and sociological imagination.

Things we chat about with Vivian Greentree:

  • Success and growth wasn’t a straight line
  • Being a realist, believing in the best of humanity
  • Doing a Ph.D program at night while husband was deployed for a year and having 2 kids under 3.
  • opportunities are often wrapped up in a disguise.
  • Helping found a non-profit for military families because there was a need in the military community for a military family group
  • empowering others
  • Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges by Amy Cutty

We don’t want to repeat how we felt when his job was dictated by somebody else. It became super important to us to define success on our own terms and then to really protect that definition and really go after that version of success. Not a different version or what ever version looked attractive that week.

Things we chat about with Hayley:

  • Busy and pressed season of life. Trying to do business, ministry, and family well.  Feeling over-scheduled.  Currently trying to rest and gather herself.
  • reflecting on summer of 2008: pregnant with second son. Still figuring out being a mom. Felt discontent.
  • was understanding and learning what it felt like to have interests outside of being a mom
  • life/success is always an evolution
  • being an over-analyzer and big thinker
  • feeling pressured to self-sacrifice or be a servant
  • having your inner thoughts and monologue match up with what you are putting out there
  • Barrett Ward of Fashionable and how he inspiring Mike and Hayley
  • Benchmarks in work/business are sometimes life driven and sometimes profit driven
  • Let go of the shoulds
  • 2014, prided herself in not having help, but realized that she and her family needed support, having her kids well taken care of while she gets work done is important!
