Hello Gypsy Families,



My name is Katie Coleman, and I have been appointed by the Commanding Officer to serve as your Ombudsman.  As such, I will serve as a liaison between the Command and you, the families.  I have been provided formal training and have gained a multitude of resources that I can access to assist you when you contact me.   As an advocate for the families of VFA-32, every situation will be approached with strict confidence and the utmost respect.  As your Ombudsman, I am always here so that you have someone to contact with your concerns and/or questions.


I have been a Navy wife for 5 years now. We are expecting our first child in January ‘15.  I have been through three moves as a military spouse, with one of those being an overseas move. We lived in Misawa Japan for three years, and during our time there, I served as Ombudsman for two years. I enjoyed it very much and am excited to serve again. This is our second time back here in Virginia and we are very happy to be back.


  I am always available to assist you and happy to help. No matter how big or how small your concern is, please never hesitate to contact me.  I am here to serve you, our Gypsy Families.  Whether you are a spouse, parent, grandparent, or even a good friend, if your Sailor considers you "family", then I am here for you.  You can reach me via cell phone or email and I will respond promptly.  (757)493-1250 or .
