Helping Veterans Carry the Load

For Navy veteran Sarah Kuehl, the community—and sacrifice—of military service is something she carries with her every day. When she joined JPMorgan Chase, she found a community that understood…and felt the same way.

In 2016, Kuehl found out about the Military Pathways Development Program at JPMorgan Chase. “I learned right away that JPMorgan Chase is not just a bunch of finance bankers, that there are so many different aspects to the bank that I could be exposed to,” she explains. “You can have a lot of different careers within one company. It’s much like with the Navy: You’re always getting sent to different parts of the Navy and getting exposed to different types of work.”

Kuehl worked with Carry The Load in Columbus, but when she moved to Washington D.C. to work with the JPMorgan Chase Institute, she discovered that the city didn’t have a Carry The Load program. “I picked up that torch and got a group together to do our first Carry The Load here in the spring of 2019.” she recalls. “Over the course of the last couple of years, it has created more recognition and understanding and just the ability for us to really understand not just the sacrifices, but the why behind it.”
