As I was growing up, my family was a big supporter of UW-Extension in Grant County. My dad helped with dairy judging and provided dairy project animals to numerous kids over the years. He always made a point to visit each kid several times each year to see how things were going.

I moved from Missouri to Wisconsin, and landed myself homeless. I didn't have a purpose, a hope, or any sense of direction. When I lost family, shelter, food and hope, it was then that I decided I never wanted to end up here again.

StrongWomen has made me stronger- especially in comparison to my same-age friends. It has allowed me to continue to do difficult and hard jobs around my home and yard. I have gained respect from many people because I do weight-lifting. Good instructors! Feels good afterwards.
