I live by myself but hopefully soon will have my son with me. 

I think of myself mostly as a positive and outgoing person. If I have the ability to help someone else out in their situation, it's my pleasure to do it.

I'm most proud of overcoming my addiction and being the best mother I can be. Even though I am a felon and have been incarcerated, it has been the most transforming experience in my life. I was able to take a rehab program and several self help classes which helped me to see where I made my mistakes and how I can better myself. In going through that, I have become a better person. Without my incarceration, I don't believe that I would have nearly all of the drive, motivation, and direction that I do today.

I went to the school at UW Oshkosh however I never completed my degree. I was the first graduate from the Welding Fast Track program at JARC. 

Something interesting about me is that I love to public speak and share my story of adversity. I have had the opportunity to speak in front of over 1600 people.

I am moving forward and need a computer to take classes online

A computer will help me go back to school quicker and increase my income. I need more earning potential so I can have my son live back home with me. More
