I'm an extroverted, hardworking, responsible, and motivated Minnesotan woman who enjoys a good cup of coffee, chocolate, adventures, and the sunshine. Graduated from Bethel University. People say my laugh is contagious. I'm the type of person who spends hours writing and editing a story, but refuses to spend more than an hour getting ready for the day. I continue to discover myself and happiness along the way.
