What are you doing now?

I am retired and enjoying riding my horses.

How did APS prepare you for this role?

AHS prepared me for these roles by teaching me resilience and offering choices to try out my talents.

Try lots of activities and make lasting friendships.

Who at APS inspired you?

What was your favorite meal in the cafeteria?

Red chili over chow mein noodles.
