Wozniak immigrated with her parents to the United States from Poland when she was one year old. She moved to New Jersey. Wozniak began fencing at age 9 at the Polish American Fencing School ( PAFS) [3] Wozniak graduated from Colonia High School in Woodbridge Township, New Jersey in 2006 and went on to attend St. John's University.[4]
