Please join us on Tuesday, July 16, 2019 for an intentional creative outlet. You will create your own personal I am Affirmation board.

Angie Petersen-Green is the Chief Freedom Officer (CFO) of Vision Maps with Angie. Growing up on a farm outside of Exeter, NE, she was instilled with impeccable values and understands what hard work is. She has spent the last 20+ years working as a Certified Nurse Aide in High School and working her way up the career ladder to be an Assisted Living Administrator. Shortly after the death of her father in 2015, she realized her life needed a change, and that’s exactly what happened. Although, she was still dedicated to serving individuals in the communities around Omaha. She was guided by a “life coach” who asked Angie…What is one thing you’d like to do? And that’s where the birth of Vision Boards was born. Angie holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Bellevue University. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with family, reading anything on personal development or leadership and biking.
