Katherine is a soldier in the U.S. Army Reserve. She is a student working toward a teaching degree. She resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she works hard to balance a military career and a civilian life.
For a lot of people, joining the Army means the first time they've ever had to wash their own laundry or mop a floor. I remember hearing a female soldier in basic training ask where she was supposed to put the detergent in the dryer. However, throughout my time in the Army so far, I have learned a lot about who I am, how I work, and what it takes to get motivated.
