CINDY'S BIO

MMCM Cindy Huratiak was born and raised in Calexico, CA. For most of Cindy's childhood her mom struggled through addiction leaving her family fighting to get by. When Cindy got to high school, she found herself yearning for more. With few resources available, she decided on taking the ASVAB to keep her options open after graduation. When she was asked to complete 100 math questions in under 3 minutes, she did just that—but in 2. Getting out of Calexico to experience the world was an option she couldn't turn her back on. With her decision made, she joined the Navy. Today, Cindy serves to prove that making the Navy a career and being a mom and wife is more than possible.
