About OMS

One More Step, LLC (OMS) was founded in 2017 by Army retirement CPT Yasheka G. Foster-Newmy.  Her vision for OMS is to provide veterans with the additional help that may be needed outside of traditional medical or psychological treatment.  Coach Sheka has first hand experiences with transitioning from military to civilian life, a life that had become foreign throughout the years.  Her struggles and learned lessons provides her the understanding to coach and mentor other veterans who may need to remember and redefine themselves, post-military.

Veterans has had the unique experience to live three lives in one lifetime. “YOU” pre-military; “YOU” during the military; and “YOU” post-military.

The post”YOU” has DRASTICALLY changed from the person your pre-“YOU”. There are tons of emotions; a daunting feeling of IRRELEVANCE & the constant anxiety in trying to identify with “Who are you” and ‘Where you fit within this big world?’

How do you learn to live structured in an unstructured world?

How do YOU learn to walk down the middle?

How do you learn to put one foot in front of the other?

As a Veteran Focused Purpose & Vision Coach, I assist those through the roadblocks and barriers to get to the person they want to be.
