Jennifer Rudquist, Training Coordinator

CalVet, CalTAP


Jennifer Rudquist was born in Japan while her father was stationed abroad. As her father served 20 years in the United States Air Force (USAF), she had the opportunity to live in England, Holland, Belgium, Washington DC, San Diego, Riverside and Sacramento.

When Jennifer graduated high school, she decided to enlist in the USAF from 1996-2000 and served as a Security Forces Airman and Command Support Staff for the 319th Missile Squadron stationed at F.E. Warren AFB in Cheyanne, WY.

After transitioning out of active duty, she pursued her passion for teaching by utilizing her GI Bill to obtain her degree in Child Development and Education.  For the next 18 years, Jennifer used this degree to teach and own a successful preschool program.

When it came time to make a career change, the CalTAP team was an easy choice as it gave Jennifer a similar structure as her military career. Jennifer states “Being a CalTAP Training Coordinator allows me to combine my passion for teaching and serving veterans. I feel honored to work for CalVet and to serve the present, past, and future military members and their families.”
