Mia Reisweber, a program administrator in leadership and cultural programs at Missouri S&T, joined two U.S. senators and others in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, Oct. 6, to discuss the challenges dual-career families face when one spouse is a member of the military. Reisweber was invited by U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri to speak at a news conference introducing the Military Family Stability Act of 2015, a bipartisan bill designed to ease some of the burden for working spouses of military and for families with children in school. 

Blunt and U.S. Sen. Kristen Gillibrand of New York are co-sponsors of the bill.

Reisweber is the wife of an active-duty military member and is pursuing her Ph.D. in higher education administration. During the news conference, she discussed the career challenges she has faced as a military spouse. The event was covered by Military Times and other news outlets. Reisweber’s comments are also included in this YouTube video of the news conference.
