In Junior school, and High school I was very active in marching band, foreign exchange club, drama, and the school mentoring program. My favorite classes were always English where I enjoyed writing stories which I shared with the elementary students in which I was assigned in the mentoring program. After graduating from Gunderson High School I went to Junior College for a while before enlisting in the U.S Army. I became extremely ill and became paralyzed because of Gillian Barre syndrome. Because I am a fighter, and refuse to give up I got back on my feet, got, married and moved to Memphis. I went to Memphis State and graduated with a B.A in Education and had my one and only child, James. He was my whole life. I volunteered at all his schools, was coach to several sporting teams, and was a Cub Scout leader. He was my greatest joy, and my greatest pain when he was killed just four days before his birthday on New Year's Eve 2008. With all my dreams destroyed in one night I resurrected and old dream.
