The Fun Stuff!
Three things I do DAILY: Kiss my husband, drink a cup of coffee, and text my mom.
I am the oldest of four children and grew up in the Cougar country of Pullman, Washington. You may recognize Pullman as the home of the National Lentil Festival (or more likely as the home of Washington State University).
I graduated from Gonzaga University in 2011 where I played Division 1 soccer for 5 years. Post-college employment took me to Madison, WI for 2.5 years. The cheese was abundant; the beer was delicious! I miss the midwest but married a proud Iowan.
Traveling is my favorite past time and a requirement for my continued sanity. You’ll often find me planning a trip to another national park with my husband or embarking on an adventure through Europe. I love visiting my sister in Portland or going home to see my parents’ English Bulldog. My favorite place in the world is Switzerland!
My hobby is reading and reviewing sports books. If that’s your jam, check out @thesportslibrarian, and if you want to collaborate, let me know!
