Lynette Nusbacher: Bio and Education
Lynette Nusbacher was actually born Aryeh Judah Schoen Nusbacher on December 17, 1966, in New York City, with male physical features.

According to Linkedin, Nusbacher is highly qualified in war studies and strategy research.
She went to the University of Toronto in Canada, graduating from there in 1988 with a B.A. (Honors) in History and Economics.
Then, in 1994, Nusbacher attended the Royal Military College of Canada and graduated with a Masters of Arts degree in War Studies.
During her studies, she gained in-depth knowledge of intelligence, management, and failures, and the process of armies and mechanized warfare.
It was soon after obtaining her Masters that Nusbacher took up a DPhil (Doctorate of Philosophy) at the University of Oxford in British Modern history, earning her the title of “Doctor.”
She has also attended the National School of Government and the Cranfield University-Cranefield School of Management for brief programs in Organizational Leadership.

She has also worked at the Cabinet Office in London, U.K. as the head of the strategy horizons unit, before moving on to lecture at the University of Reading, which is located in Berkshire, U.K.
The military expert was a senior lecturer on war strategies at The Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, from 1999 to 2013.
Nusbacher also taught as a visiting lecturer at the University of Reading for Strategy, from 2006-2012.

Lynette Nusbacher: From Man to Woman
Lynnette Nusbacher has been married to Melanie Bright since 1998; the couple is reportedly still together.
The Nusbachers have two children and live near Guildford, Surrey in England.
Bright has been a huge support to Nusbacher, shielding her wife whenever she gets the chance. “She does not wish to talk to you about a private matter,” Bright said when prying eyes wanted to know details about the gender reassignment Lynette Nusbacher went through.
Even today, a tight lid is kept on the historian’s personal life and how the change may or may not have affected their marriage or parenting.
Still, it is clear the transition has not affected Nusbacher’s passion for her work, or the teachings she brings to the table.
The American-born historian reportedly taught Prince William and Prince Harry at the prestigious Sandhurst. Sources say it was while she was there that she made the physical change from man to woman.
At the time, the top order reportedly demanded that everybody treat her with full respect and call her “Ma’am” from that point forward.
And Sandhurst’s Major General, Peter Pearson, reportedly declared that any snide comments or remarks on Lynette Nusbacher would be treated with severe punishment.
Lynette Nusbacher has been ranked at numbers 53, 68, and 77 in the Pink Lists from 2011-2013. (A Pink List is a list that ranks the most influential members of the LGBTQ community; it was known as the Rainbow list before 2014.)
The Independent on Sunday (a British national newspaper) publishes the list annually. The list was started in 2000 to honor all those who are openly LGBTQ or belong to the proud community.
Nusbacher is also an avid supporter of the Jewish community. She does whatever she can to promote and keep the history of the Jewish people alive. As a Jew herself, she wants people to understand the importance of the community and its ways.
