About Me...

I grew up on a farm in Jones County near Monticello and moved to Dubuque in 2019 after spending 12 years in the Minneapolis-St. Paul and greater Chicagoland areas.  I love to play French horn, piano, and sing, and in my free time I enjoy cooking, being a dog mom, hanging out with family and cheering on the Minnesota Vikings!
