  • What is your "why"? Why do you do what you do?
    Serving is my why. I seek to be a blessing to everyone.
  • About me
    I grew up in a very small town in Northwest Minnesota on the ND/MN border. I learned to treat everyone with respect and to work hard no matter the job/career. Family is most important to me and I have been married for over 31 years. I was an only child but had very close relationships with cousins that became like my siblings. I have two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and two grandkids. I also have a rambunctious puppy named Cash and a cat named Chester. In my spare time, I teach a dance fitness class that has been a source of great joy and mental well-being in addition to being good for the body.

    My career has given me a great variety of experiences. Including one of my most proud moments when I won a telly award for a local production that I oversaw called, "Keep the Faith". I wanted to be a choreographer when I was little but growing up in northwest Minnesota didn't give me a lot of opportunities to go far with that. I am grateful to have been introduced and welcomed into a dance fitness community and that they allow me to create and lead class!

    My husband and I are childhood sweethearts. I have memories of him from the time I was 8 years old. In fact, at the wise age of 9, I declared that I was going to marry him someday. We will celebrate 32 years this year.

    I played drums in middle/early high school. I had an amazing music teacher that believed whole heartedly in my ability but sadly, I did not stick with it. I love music and have passed that on to my kids.
  • Hobbies and interest
    Being in my kitchen, exercising, spending any amount of time with my grandkids and being at our lake place. I am a copywriter nerd. I am always rewriting and editing stuff! I like to think of it as my superpower that I am still growing and developing.
