Naomi might not have participated much in sports growing up, but picked boxing up after high school, and a year before enlisting. Her sister had introduced her to the sport years earlier, but only in 2012 did begin a self-training regimen that led to her first three wins. The Army has allowed her expert coaching, elite facilities, and the opportunity to compete throughout the nation and the world.

Being a Soldier-athlete means everything to me. Both sides I get to show what a leader looks like. I get to mentor on both sides and people look up to me on both sides. I feel I have knowledge to share on both sides that can help someone in the future.
