Hello Friends, I am a Wife (happily married for over 23 years), a proud mom to an amazing Son who will graduate high school in May 2018 with a High School Diploma and 15 College Credits with plans to pursue a degree in Computer Engineering.
I grew up in a small town in Minnesota where I graduated from High School and then took the next natural step in education, I enrolled in College majoring in Social Work. I new all my life that I wanted to "help" others and new I could do that and more as a Social Worker. After one Semester I realized that I was not ready for the college experience and enlisted in the U.S. Army as a Logistics Specialist.
My first duty station brought me to Fort Riley, Kansas in 1992. During my term of service I continued to help others (which I believe is my calling in life) that included other soldiers, their families and the community in which I resided. One day I decided I wanted to continue my pursuit of being a Social Worker. I completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Services in 18 months and then decided I wanted more for myself so I ended my term of service and prepared for Graduate School where I obtained a Masters Degree in Social Work.
I have been a School Social Worker for a local public school system for the past 17 years. I am still "helping" people but I also realize that my skills could expand outside of the my current profession into more. And so here we are-I became an Independent Creative Partner with Initials, Inc. September of 2015.
