Ambassador Spotlight
Motto or Favorite Quote:
"You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending." - C.S. Lewis
What are you currently most excited about with your work/career?
Building our clientele. Helping seniors live at home as long as possible. Also, so many people don't really understand medicare benefits so educating them is very rewarding.
What do you enjoy most about living, working and playing in Siouxland?
The people. For the most part Siouxland is blessed with a lot of honest, good, hardworking people. If you complain that there is nothing to do around here, you're just not looking hard enough!
Other volunteer / community involvement:
I volunteer at the Siouxland Center for Active Generations two times a week. I teach a Wednesday Senior Yoga class and a Friday morning fitness class.
