Ann Hammond

Ann is a consulting psychologist specializing in professional executive coaching for high-achieving military veterans in career-transition programs.  She helps these accomplished members identify their life purpose and transform that purpose into a career path with a clear plan of action.

Her purpose: “I guide veterans through the murky waters of career transition so that they can see and understand themselves more fully to reveal their True North.”

Her executive coaching services include many years as an adjunct Executive Leadership Development Coach with the global Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) in support of their leadership development programs for corporate and educational leaders.  Additional contract services include executive leadership coaching with leaders in federal government, DOD, NGA, an international insurance company, and a state-wide medical hospital system.

Ann’s career began as a civilian psychologist at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth directing the Psychological Assessment Division and providing counseling to active-duty naval personnel for both officer and enlisted members.

She later transitioned from government service to establish an independent consultancy providing two separate services: clinical/counseling, and executive coaching as noted.  The counseling pursuits led to 15 years with a Virginia Beach private practice providing clinical/counseling to both adult military and non-military populations.  She also has extensive experience doing VA disability evaluations for retiring veterans seeking benefits.

Since the 2016 Virginia Beach startup, Ann has provided executive coaching to Special Operations members involved in The Honor Foundation (THF) transition programs, and to their MARSOC program members at Camp Lejeune.  She has previously provided executive coaching to the COMMIT Foundation military transition program.
