I am an "Army Brat", daughter of Noel Jackson Tirey and Demetria (Hernandez) Tirey, and was born and partially raised in Madisonville, Hopkins, Kentucky. My daddy, Noel served two tours of duty in Korea and three in Vietnam.
While we were living in Okinawa, Naha base, my mother was killed. Soon after, my father moved my older sister and I to Madisonville to be raised by my dear grandmother Inez (Slaton) Tirey Wilson, while my father continued to serve in the Army,Vietnam.
I'm a professional engineer, graduated from Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) with degrees in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering. I continued my education at the University of Miami (FL) and later Defense System Management College (DSMC) in Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
