Branch of Military: Army
Years Served: 2015-Present
Morgan was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. Her family was musically-focused and though Morgan was expected to follow that path, she felt her calling was public service. After September 11th, inspired by the first-responders, she decided to become a police officer.
Morgan served the City of Nashville for 10 years as a police officer and after moving to New England with her wife, Kimber, and their son, Adeel, she spent the last 4 years serving as a soldier in the Massachusetts Army National Guard. As a police officer, Morgan was the youngest woman in Nashville ever to reach to the rank of Lieutenant.
Currently, she is one of a very small number of women who serve in the Field Artillery and was recently promoted to gunner, which is rarely held by a female soldier. Morgan spends most of her free time with her dogs, at the gym and loves outworking all of the “young pups” as she calls them, in her National Guard unit.
While serving in the military she has been awarded numerous medals for superior performance; and most recently represented her battalion as Soldier of the Year in the Massachusetts Best Warrior Competition- again, a slot never held by a female in the field artillery.
