She holds a doctoral degree from Benedictine University, Master of Science degrees from Johns Hopkins University and Air University, and a Bachelor of Science from Penn State University.

Her resulting book won the 2004 Air Force research prize and was published by AU Press. She is also a 2006 alumnus of the Harvard Senior Executive Fellows program.

Since her military retirement in 2007, Dr. Hesterman continued serving as a cleared professional, studying international and domestic terrorist organizations, transnational threats, and organized crime. She is one of very few analysts specializing in the terror-crime nexus, detecting the liaising, sharing or mirroring of operational tactics and financing methods between groups. Dr. Hesterman performs operational research on terrorist exploitation of the Internet through social networking, nonbank, Internet auction and Dark Web sites. She is also a consultant on soft target vulnerabilities and hardening tactics for schools, churches, hospitals, malls and sporting and recreational venues. She instructs and designs courses for federal government law enforcement and security organizations and serves on the ASIS School Safety and Security Council.

The second edition was released in December, 2018. She co-authored Soft Target Crisis Management: What Emergency Planners and Security Professionals Need to Know (2016) and authored The Terrorist-Criminal Nexus: An Alliance of International Drug Cartels, Organized Crime, and Terror Groups (2013).

Dr. Hesterman is a sought after public speaker, with thirty-five keynote and guest speaking and training events in the U.S. and abroad since 2007 for the FBI, DHS, DoD, state and local law enforcement, and Major League Baseball.

A mentor and career coach for many up-and-coming leaders, she also speaks to audiences on personal development topics including cross-generational/gender/culture mentoring, and how women can attain work/life balance and achieve in the demanding security realm. An explorer and lover of nature and the great outdoors, she climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in July,

2017 and explored Antarctica in January, 2018, including an overnight trip to the South Pole. Dr. Hesterman will attempt to reach the North Pole in June, 2019, on a Russian icebreaker ship.
