Julia

The Story:

Julia is a 26-year old Native American woman from rural Red Rock, OK. She has glaucoma and became a client when she was a junior in High School when the Oklahoma Tribal Vocational Rehabilitation (OKTVR) helped her with the ACT costs and additional testing fees. The support continued on into college where OKTVR helped with college expenses including a laptop, books, tuition and fees, stipend, transportation, vehicle repairs and counseling and guidance for Julia to get her B.S and Physician Assistant Degree. 

She works now with native communities in rural areas and she believes she could not have completed her high school and college education without OKTVR. 

Julia is very grateful and appreciative for being given the opportunity to have the support of OKTVR and her Counselor, Ron Baker, who was always available and very supportive in her journey.
