Jessica Catalfamo, the Low VA Rates Spring 2020 scholarship winner

Jessica Catalfamo
Spring 2020 Scholarship Recipient

After serving 7 years active duty in the Army, including a deployment in Afghanistan, Jessica currently lives in New York with her husband and two young sons. Though she is no longer an active duty soldier, Jessica continues to serve in the Army Reserves while she pursues her bachelor's degree at Russell Sage University.

After she graduates, Jessica plans to pass her National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) on the first try in order to become a registered nurse (RN) and work in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Eventually she also plans on getting her Master of Science in Nursing and becoming a neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP).

Jessica is grateful for everything the Army taught her, including perseverance, confidence, and passion for service. These are qualities she uses everyday as a mother and in pursuit of her degree. Because of her time in the military, she knows how to adapt to any environment and overcome any obstacle, no matter how difficult.


Why We Created the Scholarship

At Low VA Rates, we believe that owning a home is just part of the American dream. Education is another important part, which is why we don't just stop at helping our heroes with housing. You deserve our support when it comes to preparing for your future, both inside and outside of the military.
