I have disabilities and they affect my every day life. When I was a young girl my parents were told that the best that they could hope for me was either I would wind up in jail or an institution. That high school was out of the picture for me and not to even attempt thinking about college. my parents were told I would never be able to live on my own, or drive a car....

I attended and graduated from West Iredell High School. Graduated in 1995. I went to one year at Lees McRae College in Banner Elk, North Carolina and then I came home and I attended Mitchell Community College and I obtained my AAS(Associates in Applied Science) Degree in Human Services and I graduated Mitchell in 1999.
