Mt. Angel

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Albert Einstein


I do what I do so that people with disabilities can have their voices heard.


Life has taught me:

Back when people used to call me names and make fun of me, it didn’t make me want to hide and be quiet. I made me want to speak louder!


Bet you didn’t know:

My interests are meteorology, puzzles, camping, painting and needle point. My favorite foods are mac&cheese and Mt. Dew. I listen to classic rock and my dream vacation would be to visit Easter island.


If I could change the world:

Everyone would be treated as equals.


What people like and admire about me:

My sense of humor, my laugh, my passion for work, my commitment and that I’m not afraid of anything.
