Summary

I am currently a full-time student at NEMCC in Booneville, MS.  My major is business management.  I have lived in Booneville for the past 23 years.  I have been a business owner of two businesses: a florist and a screen printing business.  I have always been dedicated to my family and career.  Four years ago I was diagnosed with a bone and joint disease that has left me physically disabled.  I am furthering my education in hopes of obtaining employment that is suitable for my disability.  I am also interested in becoming an advocate for other disabled Americans.  Helping and inspiring others has always been my primary goal.
