I was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota. I attended the College of St Scholastica, in Duluth, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Health Sciences and a Minor in Psychology. I then continued there to get my Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy until I officially graduated in 2016. I have always loved working with and mentoring kids and grew up going to and working at summer camps. I spent several summers coming to Alaska to volunteer at a camp as a lifeguard, counselor, and cook until I officially moved to Alaska in 2016 to start my career, get married, and start a family. Our family enjoys being outdoors, hiking, fishing, skiing, snowboarding, watching hockey games, and exploring our beautiful state.
