Nyshita Cruz is both a Navy Spouse and Veteran. She’s from Detroit Michigan.
She served in the US Navy for 10 years and met her husband while on active duty. They’ve been married for 19 years, and it’s been quite an interesting journey. As they approach retirement, she is looking forward to serving our military community and expanding her service to a global arena.
She is a humanitarian at heart and has served in roles of support for our military families.
After her military service, she went on to receive a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. She utilized some of those skills during her time as a Programs Assistant for the Navy Morale, Welfare, and Recreation Department, which is geared towards improving the quality of life for the families of military service members. She also served in the role of Navy Ombudsman for a Naval Ship in Italy, helping families communicate their needs and concerns to the ShShip’shain of Command. In this role, she was a liaison between the Chain of Command and the Service Members’ families.
As a global citizen, she is thankful to have been able to be of service over the years and now is thankful and excited to join MilSpouse Conversations, where she’s sure we will have some great conversations about topics that are relevant and helpful to spouses all over the world and in every branch of service. When shes’ not here chatting it up, you can find her at Doodle Maestro creating fun t-shirts.
