I grew up in a family of 6 in Wisconsin, where I learned to despise the cold but love the Green Bay Packers! After graduating from UW-Madison, I moved to Paraguay where I worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer for a few years. It was there that I fell in love with the Spanish language and with community outreach work! I also developed a deep appreciation for forming and maintaining relationships with community members and families. So with the intention of finding a career that would allow me to express these passions, I went back to school to become an NP once I was back in the States after completing my service.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my spouse – doing outdoor activities, making music, playing soccer, creating good food, yoga, and meditation!
