“I am an Omaha, NE native. First proud to grow up in the “Big O,” I am still proud that I “don’t coast.” In addition to its multiple seasons, growing population and historical landmarks, Omaha always has new experiences cropping up! Living here has brought a wealth of opportunities in recent decades. I appreciate its breadth of business, music, sports, theater, and entertainment venues. Its school systems are diverse in both the public and private realms. With community colleges, public and private universities, Omaha has plenty of higher education opportunities for life long learners as well. This is where I grew up, and this is where I will grow old. Gratefully, the best has been and will be the years in between.” -Current Resident, August 2019
