San Diego/Camp Pendleton Chapter
Welcome to Blue Star Families of San Diego!
As your San Diego Chapter Director, my goal is to be here for you.
Through partnering with local organizations, creating engaging programs, and sharing unique opportunities, I hope to help you and your family gain a sense of belonging to our community. Whether you are here for a short while or for longer, I invite you to be part of our adventures and special events.
Follow our Facebook page to stay up-to-date on our Chapter’s latest activities, and share your stories, too.
Together, we are creating a San Diego that supports and celebrates military and Veteran families.
Until we meet in person, send me an email and let me know what I can do for you.

Town Hall series
Our Homefront & Frontlines Town Hall Series features high-profile speakers covering topics of key importance to military members, Veterans, and their families.
Blue Star Welcome Week
From September 24 to October 2, 2022, communities across the U.S. will welcome military and Veteran families who are new to the neighborhood.
STARBUCKS: More than a Cup of Coffee
Together with Starbucks, we are committed to strengthening military and Veteran families and connecting Americans to those who serve through opportunities like regular Coffee Connects for military spouses, welcome to the community events, and Yellow Ribbon Trees.
Campaign for Inclusion
All Blue Star Families programming is informed by our research. For this reason, research and advocacy is a key pillar of our Campaign for Inclusion. While all Blue Star Families research in the future will continue to look at data through a racial equity and inclusion lens, our groundbreaking study: The Diverse Experiences of Military and Veteran Families of Color provides unparalleled insight into how military families experience military life.
