I have currently resided in Olmsted Township since May of 2015. Previously I lived in Elyria going to Lorain County Community College. I moved to Olmsted Township to be closer to Central School of Practical Nursing. When I was growing up I moved around very frequently. We never lived in one place for more than a year. I grew up around the Akron area until I moved up to the Cleveland area my sophomore year in high school. I am honestly very glad my family moved away from the Akron area to Avon.

    Little did I know that crisp September day would start the downward spiral of my happiness. The next few months were a blur, packing up my mom’s things and helping her move out of the home in which I grew up.
