I’m the author of the literary collection “Three Stories and Some Poems.”

I’m the owner of The Grove Oak Store.. the first woman to ever be on DeKalb County’s Park Board. I won a leadership award from the local newspaper and the Knesset gave me a certificate of honour for my outstanding help and support.

I have brought commerce back to my almost deserted hometown by re-opening the long closed store. I made the expansion to include gasoline sales in 2019 for the community and in preparation for the tourists’ return to the area upon renovation completion at our local state park., Buck’s Pocket State Park. I have preserved some of our local history in the Grove Oak museum and have lobbied to replace the missing Trail of Tears markers in town. I have spoken with our elected officials on the town’s behalf, mainly concerning our local state park, Buck’s Pocket State Park. I have made attempts at addressing safety concerns in town and head up the local community watch.

Documentary film-maker, “We The People.” This is a documentary about the struggles of the Sioux Indians in North Dakota, the Dakota Access Pipeline, risks to our water, and history of Native American mistreatment. Also, has an additional portion “We The People Too” that discusses miscalculation of Natives on the American census.
