Elizabeth Perez’ father who originated from Jalisco, Mexico and served in the U.S. Army for 20 years has always been her inspiration. After he passed away when she was only 17, she followed his example and joined the military in 1997. She served in the Navy for almost nine years, and now she owns her own renewable energy company, GC Green, which offers jobs to veterans.
