I’m 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’m excited to continue on that path by sharing the incredible mission of The Open Door.
When not working I enjoy reading, cooking, drinking lots and lots of coffee, snowboarding, backpacking, traveling, snuggles with my two dogs Jerry & Burton, and spending time with my enormous family.
