I’ve always liked to be independent and keep busy. I can’t see, but I don’t let that slow me down.

I’ve been with Jubilee for more than 15 years. I live in a great house with my friend Michaelis. Odunayo from Jubilee lives with us and helps me be on my own.

For 29 years I worked at the U.S. Consumer Safety Product Commission. I loved delivering the mail and being with all my friends on staff. I decided to retire during the pandemic. I turned 50 right at that time too. It was time for me to think about what comes next.

I met with the people at Jubilee, and they helped me think about what I want to do. It was really helpful. I want to go back to work, either paid or volunteer. I’m a people person, and I like being useful. We also talked about how I want to keep being active and healthy. I exercise with a trainer, and Odunayo helps me with the Jubilee fitness classes too. I have a great life. I can’t wait to see what comes next for me.
