I am a Minnesota native, hailing from the little town of Winthrop. I graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato with a degree in journalism and communications.
Communications, writing, and community engagement work have always been present in the roles I’ve held. Whether as a journalist, outreach specialist, wilderness guide, or a server/bartender, engaging with people, and my community, has always been an important part of my journey. I am honored to continue on that path by sharing the incredible mission of The Open Door.
When not fulfilling my role as Communications Specialist, I enjoy gardening, cooking, drinking lots and lots of coffee, snowboarding, backpacking, traveling, snuggles with my two dogs Jerry & Burtie, and spending time with my enormous family.
