My name is Nichelle Anastashia Gautier, aka - Soror Invincible Force #7, SMR2K15 (Crossed 29 Aug15), National Line Alpha Sigma, of the UnbreaKEYable Forces.
I am proud to be a member of Kappa Epsilon Psi (KEY) Military Sorority because I love being part of an organization that has members with the same lifestyle, interests, and goals for maintaining our Military Heritage through sisterhood.
I’m from Chicago, Illinois. I have 3 sisters and no brothers. My significant other's name is Mark Charles Gautier, Sr. (Deceased). I have two grown children, Laketa, married with 1 child, and Saundrya who has 3 children. I have three stepchildren, Danielle (deceased), Nicole who has 1 child, and Mark Jr. who also has 1 child.
I joined the Army as a 92Y in 1987 (Army Reserves) in 1989 (Regular Army). I was assigned to various positions throughout my career. I retired as a Master Sergeant (MSG). I currently reside in El Paso, Texas, and have been here for 8 years.
I am currently working as a Contractor at White Sands Missile Range as The Logistics Management Coordinator for the Transportable Telemetry Systems (TTS).
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Management/Human Resources from Park University. I will be pursuing my Master’s Degree in Business Management Human Resources & Development at Webster University.
I have a life filled with love, great aspirations, and amazing choices with no regrets. My passion is to help Veterans, their Families, and the advocates that support them. I help others by volunteering as the Lead Facilitator for the Military Veteran Peer Network, El Paso, TX. My motto is adopted from someone I truly admire:
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” – Maya Angelou
My hobbies include spending time with my family and friends, cooking, reading, fine dining, shopping, volunteering, and some plain old "me time."
I heard about ΚΕΨ through a friend who is a member. After some consideration I decided to pursue becoming a member. I am greatful for the Sorority because I love encouraging others, I enjoy being able to make a difference in others’ lives and them in mine, and lastly I want to assist as the change agent that will help all Military Women join together as one in Sisterhood!
