Ever since Alani was a little girl she always knew she was born to serve others and protect life. That desire led to a life in the United States military.
She became a special agent working for the Air Force and started her career in Japan working a lot of drug cases. She started a country wide programme to prevent the sexual abuse of children via the Internet. From there she deployed to the Middle East where she worked for Special Forces to chase terrorists. Then she went to the headquarters in Quantico where she over saw counter intelligence. She returned to the Middle East doing counter intelligence / counter terrorism work and then she became a senior bodyguard to a senior government official.
Alani talks about pushing the limits in her professional life and how she maintained her resilience throughout.
