When did you start working for the Anamosa Care Center?

May, 2018

Where do you live (town)? How long have you lived there?

I live in Cedar Rapids and have been there for 2 years. I grew up in a small town called Mechanicsville, Iowa and moved to Anamosa in 3rd grade.

Where did you graduate from high school? College?

I graduated from Anamosa High School in 2016 and went to Kirkwood for Special Education. After a few months, I realized I didn’t want to pursue that career and went into workforce. I got my CNA licenses in 2018 and came to work at the Anamosa Care Center.
