Founder's Story

Nathan & Stacey Ecelbarger

Our first chapter of impact started with a desire to disrupt Military Spouse un/underemployment, and we recognized a need in the Military Spouse community that was more than just the absence of a career. Military Spouses were exchanging passion for a paycheck, yearning for a relevant and meaningful career path, self-actualization, value and success. 

In January 2017, we founded Freedom Learning Group with the distinct motivating force to give Military Spouses the freedom to invest in their career AND support their Service Member.  Military families serve and sacrifice in countless ways and we made it our personal mission to strengthen the career/family balance by providing career opportunities to the Military Spouses serving on the home front too. 

Freedom Learning Group provides 100% virtual career opportunities for Military Spouses in every imaginable discipline and industry keeping Military Spouse professionals relevant in their chosen field of study. Freedom Learning Group thrives because of the incomparable passion and drive that our military community brings to the workforce. 

Freedom Learning Group was inspired out of a passion to support and empower our military community and it is currently led by an incredible team of individuals impacting the lives of so many families. Our family has now shifted our focus to create further sustainable stories in the hope that others will follow and continue to grow the good. Our next chapter will be local community involvement, as we seek to build and live out active examples of bridging division, finding commonality in our humanity, and creating empathy for each of the stories so integral to the local Orlando community. 

We hope that you'll join us on our next chapter of impact.

Parable Effect

We believe in the power of the “Parable Effect” to capture the stories of those most in need of social change in diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the power of those stories to create empathy.
