Seeking Scrum Master Mentor

I really need to find a seasoned SM to teach, challenge and encourage me as I serve as Scrum Master. Though I've improved continually serving several teams over 3 years, I'm currently the only Scrum Master in an organization that does not fully understand the value of Scrum and where executive buy-in is minimal. I'm also in a city (Tulsa, OK) where I have not been able to find a user group, meetup etc where such seasoned practitioners attend.

I would say I'm between competency and proficiency in various aspects of what the role requires:

Are any seasoned practitioners interested in mentoring a very motivated SM student? Do you know where I can find someone willing to invest time in me and improve the profession of software development in Tulsa?

Dear Jason,

I found this message while I was searching  a mentor for myself.  I thought I will check with you if you can be my mentor.  I have Scrum Certification but I don't have any experience as a Scrum Master.  Could you please guide me?

Right now I work at HP as performance tester.   I want to know how do I become a part of SCRUM TEAM and become a SCRUM MASTER.  I currently live in COLORADO.
