I grew up in beautiful Highland County. I could always be found on the farm with my Dad. We spent numerous hours a day feeding livestock and making hay in the summer. Another favorite part of my farm life was, when the livestock had to be vaccinated. Since I don't live on the farm anymore, I miss the opportunity to work with animals and help work there when I can.
When I wasn't at the barn helping my dad, I would be riding horses. In 2013, I volunteered at Sullystone Stables as a assistant riding instructor. I have always enjoyed working with people and animals. The stable held summer camps for young children and young teenagers, we taught them the different riding styles. In 2018, I worked as a receptionist at the local florist, Highland Mountain Flowers. Due to the hardship of the economy the florist store closed for business and I went to work at a turkey farm, gathering eggs until I moved out of the area.
In 2019, I moved to Fisher, WV where I started taking care of elderly people in Petersburg, WV Commission on Aging. My role at this time is to be a caregiver for those who are unable to be independent. This job is very close to my heart. My late uncle is the reason I became interested in the Healthcare field. My uncle became paralyzed at the age 22. I never knew him before he was paralyzed, but he spoke with me often about the trails and hardship of learning simple daily skills all over again. He spoke so highly, and with such respect of all people who helped him adjust not only physical but emotionally as well. I spent my evenings after school and free time helping him with whatever he needed. He encouraged me to continue to help others and find my passion.
