I was born and raised in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I grew up in a house in the woods, which is where my love of the outdoors began. I started running cross country in junior high, and I have continued to run pretty consistently for enjoyment ever since. In college, despite majoring in Biomolecular Sciences, I concentrated on music, writing songs and frequently playing shows with my band. Today, music continues to be a hobby of mine. After working as a chemist for about a year, I decided health care was a better fit for me and attended an online accelerated nursing program to get my bachelor’s degree in nursing. Recently, I moved to Colorado Springs to start a nursing job here and enjoy the mountains and many trails that the state of Colorado has to offer.
