I am from Salt Lake City, Utah, where I was living when I joined the U.S. Air Force as a Cryptologic Language Analyst in March 2013. I was sent to the Defense Language Institute (DLI) in Monterey, California that May to learn Iraqi-Arabic and Modern Standard Arabic. I graduated from DLI in September 2014 with a diploma and degree in Arabic Language and Literature. While in Monterey I married my husband, Madison. After being fully trained as an Intelligence Specialist, I was stationed at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland in January 2015 where I worked at the National Security Agency (NSA) in a variety of positions. While in Maryland, I earned three more degrees (General Studies, Intelligence Studies and Technology, and History) and was blessed with a wonderful daughter, Adelynn Wynter, in November 2017. I was honorably discharged from the U.S. Air Force in 2019 and moved back home to Utah where I began working at the University of Utah and am currently serving as the Surgical Education Manager within the Office of Surgical Education in the Department of Surgery. In January 2020, I started my Master of Education program in Organizational Leadership and Adult Education and plan to complete it by December 2021.
I am a passionate individual who always strives to learn and develop my skills, approaching every challenge I come across as an experience to grow and progress as a professional. That's why, in addition to working on projects similar to those I have already completed, I seek out new types of endeavors I have yet to encounter. I love to explore history and work on research and genealogy.
