After two years of language and intelligence training, she was posted to Fort Meade, Maryland. She worked as a cryptologic linguist, and is fluent in the Persian language and in Dari, the Persian dialect spoken in Afghanistan, as well as in Pashto. Assigned to the drone program, she listened in on intercepted foreign chatter to provide U.S. forces with intelligence.
