Biography Information
I’m from all over the place (mostly Minnesota, but also Illinois, Arkansas, and now Mississippi)! My big thing is getting outside whenever I can. I love doing things on the water (boating with friends, tubing, wakeboarding, etc.), playing tennis, winter activities when I’m home (snowboarding, pond hockey/ice skating, winter hiking), and more recently, running and road biking. I also have developed a photography hobby, which I pair with hiking when I can. I grew up in a family that loves to cook, which has translated to me loving to cook. We also love to garden, which is something I try to do now too. Finally, I like to read and hang out with friends whenever I can.
