I have a Medical Assistance Certification and am a former CNA working in a nursing home which I absolutely loved.

How did you get involved in the Independent Living Movement?

After getting my CMA Certification I was looking for something to work directly with people. This position came available and I was intrigued. I have always wanted to work with people one on one to help with their needs.

Fun Fact:
  • I co-owned a landscape business for years.
  • Love to make tassies
  • Mimi to 3 grandchildren
Something that may surprise you about me:

At the age of 48, I went back to school for my CMA Certification!
