Originally from Michigan, Cara joined the Air Force in 2015. She received an Associate's degree in Modern Hebrew in 2016 and began her studies at the University of Maryland in the fall of 2017. She graduated in May of 2020 with a Bachelor's degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice and is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Criminology at UMD. For fun, Cara enjoys spending time outside, watching Lions games (full of hope), and is also a competitive Irish dancer. She hopes to someday work in federal law enforcement.
