An Army captain living in Washington state, Cynthia Anzulewicz Holuta ’06 is featured in an online project, Military Women, by photographer and Army officer Jennifer McIntyre.
Cynthia said she entered the ROTC at IUP with some hesitation, in spite of growing up around the Army with a career officer father. One of her fondest memories, she said in the profile, was her IUP graduation, when she and her husband and fellow ROTC graduate, Matthew Holuta ’06, led their class into the Memorial Field House gymnasium.
Since that time, she has served in Iraq and Afghanistan and earned a master’s degree in public relations from Georgetown University. She and Matthew have two children.
Throughout her career, Cynthia said, she has benefited from the guidance of veteran female officers. “They schooled me where necessary, had my back when I needed it, and validated that I knew my stuff.” She said she looks forward one day to mentoring junior officers in the same way.
