Bio 

After serving honorably in the United States Army for nearly 12 years, I began attending college and raising my two daughters as a single, working mom. When a serious accident resulted in losing my right leg, I chose to homeschool my youngest child. Now that my children are grown, I am eager to reenter the workforce. I have maintained my proficiency in computer operations and office skills.
