My name is DeAngela Edwards. I am the proud mother of one adult son and one grandson. I am family oriented and believe they are one of our biggest supporters. I have been an Licensed Practical Nurse for over 20 years. I am also a Licensed Massage Therapist. In the last 10 years I have worked specifically with minors and adults with special needs and have loved every minute of it. This community has humbled me and shown me the true meaning of strength. I am so excited to be apart of this Organization. I am ready and willing to make sure that this community has the same rights and privileges as every one else. My goal is for my dedication to show with each step and monument we take as an Organization.
