Personal Interests

I am a former collegiate soccer and softball player who then transitioned to recreation leagues (volleyball, basketball, soccer, and softball) to satisfy the competitive itch. Now, I spend most of my time outside of work trying to keep up with my 4 children and rambunctious yellow lab. As a family, we try to spend the majority of our time together on the lake or in the mountains!
