I am a lifetime member of the PVA and have been so for over 40 years.
I was in the Marine Corps in the 2nd Angelico Airborne Division. After I was injured I participated in wheelchair sports of various types. My highlight was in bench press weightlifting when I benched 310 pounds in the lightweight division. I then started college and received a BA in psychology.
I moved to Las Vegas in 1973 and earned a Masters in counselling. I worked in various fields: counselling students at UNLV, Mental Health counselling, drug and alcohol counselling, realtor, owned my own business, and 20 years’ experience working in Worker’s Compensation, counselling injured workers on how to return back to the workforce.
