I moved to Minnesota in 1994 as a young child and genuinely enjoy living in the Twin Cities area. I spend my evenings and weekends outside as much as the weather and season will allow me. My family loves to travel, cook, hike, and go on adventures around the state and the country when we can. I try to "practice what I preach" and stay active for my physical and mental wellness, prioritize self-care, and learn new things frequently.
BA in psychology, Concordia College, Moorhead, 2011
