About: I have been involved in Special Olympics since the 8th Grade, where I participated in Vincermos Therapeutic Riding Center and trained and competed in Dressage. I have won many medals and ribbons over the years of which I am very proud. I was awarded the National Medal at Port St. Lucie in 2003 for golf skills. I compete in bowling and aquatics. I have moved around Florida from Lake Worth to Ft. Myers. I volunteer at the Villas Media Center.
