I am native to Southern Minnesota, graduated from Albert Lea Senior High. After a brief stint living in Central Iowa, I made my way back to MN, and I don't plan on leaving any time soon. I have 2 children, my oldest graduated from Owatonna High School, and the youngest is in the Middle School here. I am a coach with Special Olympics and a member of the management team, a cause near and dear to my heart. I love reading, John Grisham anyone? Also, I enjoy medical dramas on TV, and I love watching the Law & Order Franchise shows....dun dun. If I'm not out and about somewhere, I love hosting get-togethers for my family and friends.
