I moved to Nebraska in 1993. I spent a few years working in various jobs, nurse aid, housekeeper and dishwasher before deciding to pursue a college degree. I attended McCook Community College, graduating in 1997 with an Associate of Art degree in Sociology. I then attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney, where I graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology.
I then relocated to Lincoln where I attended the Nebraska Center for the Blind and later worked there as the Apartment resource Counselor. In 2002 I left that position to attend graduate school at Doane College.
In 2004 I left Lincoln to live in York, where I still live with my husband and family. I enjoy reading, crocheting, sewing, traveling, my dogs and spending time with my family. I am the Juvenile Diversion Services Coordinator for York County. I also own my own business, providing products and information to blind people.
