She will consult VA leaders regarding the delivery of services supporting veterans and servicemen who are transitioning out of the military, the department said Monday.
“Cheryl Rawls has a 20-year track record as an effective VA leader with extensive knowledge of VA’s benefits, services and programs,” said Robert Wilkie, secretary of veterans affairs.
Most recently, Rawls functioned as executive director of VA’s pension and fiduciary service, having held the role since 2016. She also served in a number of other executive director roles in the department, and contributed military service to the U.S. Army.
