Throughout the years that I've lived here, the community and the city has made amazing changes. There are friendly activities throughout the year for families and children as well.




Certain areas are very quiet


working, education, transportation, and community all work together.


I enjoyed working with elderly and the people that aren't able to do things on their own…. Love helping others …let them know that there is still life and love to live….taking care of my love ones help me with this passion to understand I'm needed in the field…
