She joined in 1987, and after one enlisted tour, she spent the next few years working in the real estate industry. In 1998 she joined the Coast Guard Reserves, and in August 2001 she received a Reserve Officer Commission. When the attacks of 9/11 occurred, she was recalled to active duty, and her work since then has encompassed port security, planning, marine inspections, and investigations. She is a graduate of the University of West Florida with a degree in environmental studies; the Naval War College; and is currently working on her master's thesis in environmental planning and management.
