I am a creative and spirited young woman who enjoys spending time with my husband and kids. I graduated from South Dakota State University with a Bachelor’s in English and a minor in Professional Writing. After graduating, I focused mainly on my family, writing poetry and short fiction, and reading books. My favorite authors are Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Shakespeare, and Shel Silverstein. The outdoors is a major passion of mine; a great bonfire with friends and family while camping, playing outside on the playground with the kids, or simply taking a walk around the neighborhood. Fishing is also an activity I enjoy, but I still refuse to bait the hook on my own. Overall, the outdoors, family, and literature are extremely important to me.
