I have spent 30 years in the RV industry enjoying every minute of it! I didn’t know a thing about them but wanted to find out everything I could. And I did – I had found my place in the world. It also gave me an opportunity to support myself and my children having little education. Life can be hard when poor choices are made but there is always a chance to change your life by being open to receiving what life is trying to teach you.

Director

I was born in Kansas City and spent my youth in a small town, Fort Scott Kansas. I joined ROTC. My time is complete and I am now preparing to retire. I want to give back to the community and some of that will be working with those that have PTSD the other is to assist where I can in making a difference.
