Augusta, who uses her legal name Neonila on NABUR, has lived in Montrose for just over two weeks. Yet, you might have seen her commenting and posting on here since the site’s creation four months ago. 

Augusta moved to Montrose based on some fond memories of the American Southwest that she acquired when living and working in the Navajo Nation in the 80s. In 1991, she moved to Ukraine, where she ended up living for 24 years. 

After a few years in South Dakota and a couple more in Colorado Springs, Augusta’s starting a new life in Montrose. Read Augusta’s full story, then welcome her to the neighborhood here.
