I was raised on a ranch by Oelrichs. I grew up on the ranch and started rodeoing at a young age. I have been a sped Para for the last eight years. Education careers have been in my family for a very long time. My mom taught for 30 plus years. Last four years, I was a sped Para at Chadron High School for a girl with Down Syndrome. I have two sisters and one brother. I have been a Para for Oelrichs School and Oglala County Schools.
