Wynter received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Alcorn State University in 2000, followed in 2002 by her master’s degree in biology education. She has been selected for long-term training for the 2013/2014 academic year, and will attend Louisiana State University to pursue a doctorate in agronomy. In addition to her role as a research biologist, Wynter enjoys spending time with her husband, Gary, photography, traveling and volunteering with her church.
