Randolph Patterson Murrell , Gwendolyn Louise Spivey , Fed. Pub. Def., Fed. Pub. Defender's Office, Tallahasse, FL, for Defendant-Appellant.

Before CARNES, MARTIN and JORDAN, Circuit Judges.

MARTIN, Circuit Judge:

Graciela Zuniga-Arteaga appeals her conviction for aggravated identity theft, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1028A(a)(1).

After careful review of the briefs, and with the benefit of oral argument, we affirm.
