When Aron first joined the Army, she was a Parachute Rigger. After attending Officer Candidate School, she became a Signal Officer. In 2004, Aron deployed to Iraq, where she a led teams of soldiers in locations throughout the country, providing long distance phone lines and secure and non-secure internet access through a multi-channel tactical satellite network.
After separating from service, Aron began a career in sales, but felt that she was missing a true sense of value in her career. After gaining her certification to teach yoga, she began to find her purpose again. Since then, she has done additional training with Warriors At Ease to bring yoga to veterans and service members. She is also the Chapter Captain for her local Team Red White and Blue chapter. Through this expedition, Aron hopes to connect with other veterans in a healthy activity and to connect with nature.
