Just 27 years old, she’s trained as a combat medic/nurse and is mom to two young girls. She and her husband are both back in school—he’s continuing the nursing education he began in the military and she’s switched to a whole new field, culinary arts.

This spring, Tovar took on leadership of the Student Veterans of UAA, a relatively new campus club. In this 12-minute interview, she describes the challenging transition from combat to college life for veterans, and outlines her ambitions for veteran-supportive activities, services and events at UAA. Top on her list is a special event honoring fallen soldiers for Veterans Day 2011 – stay tuned for more details this fall.
