She became a MUFON Field Investigator in 2009 and was named top investigator for Michigan in 2013. Cisneros will be the newest edition to the Communications Department, and will continue the MUFON One-On-One Interviews.
Journal: Tell me about your interest in UFOs and what brought you to MUFON.
Cisneros: My interest in UFOs probably started when I was around age 10 when I first witnessed my first sighting, one of about four. At the time I really had no idea that what I had seen had a name…UFO, but since I’ve always been a curious person, always needing to know “why”, this unknown thing captured my interest. That was in the early 60s. This was before the Barney and Betty Hill case began gaining interest. In the late 1970s I started looking at the subject a little more in depth, having seen Chariots of the Gods. After this, I started reading up on the subject, reading some of the early works by Bud Hopkins, Raymond Fowler and others. What struck me most about Chariots of the Gods was the photographs, even more so than the theories proposed by Von Daniken.
I had known about MUFON for some time and was interested in joining way back when, but at the time I was busy raising a family and working, so I kind of put it on the back burner. When I stopped working full time, I felt I had the time to devote to finding out more about UFOs. This is when I decided to join MUFON and become a field investigator.
