OMA Special Projects Assistant
I am happy to be working part time for OMA and feel like I have come back home as I worked in museums for many years and have fond memories of all the wonderful people I met. For the last 13 years I worked for the Oklahoma House of Representatives. My first project of updating legislative districts was a great fit! I grew up in Indiana but have lived in Oklahoma for 41 years now. I have 4 wonderful grandsons – two in Edmond and two in Cologne, Germany.
