I grew up back and forth from both Coos County and various parts of the country and graduated from Myrtle Point. As a child I ended up in foster care and so how broken our social service system truly is. I have family members that served in the military and have told me stories about how broken the VA system is as well.
After high school I ended up doing construction work as well as working within the timber industry. With how dangerous the timber industry is I knew that it wasn’t for me. In August I started on with the maintenance team for ORH. I am proud that I am able to help with home repairs for veterans as well as be a part of the Parkside Motel project.
