Serving Gogebic, Iron and Ontonagon Counties

A survivor's journey

IRONWOOD - Meghan Movrich had a plan for the fall, like many other young adults, to head back to school.

Those who know the active 27-year-old mother of a 3-year-old daughter aren't surprised she has a bachelor's degree in health promotion and wellness. She's a former Bessemer high school and Gogebic Community College basketball player and now an activities director at Westgate Nursing Home in Ironwood.

But she saw career opportunities in the field of occupational therapy. Over the summer, she had signed up for classes. Books were purchased, she was ready to go. She just needed a physical.
