I am from central Missouri. I graduated from Missouri State University with a degree in Wildlife Conservation and Management. After college I moved to North Carolina, where I worked for Second Nature Blue Ridge. I was a wilderness therapy field instructor for 4 1/2 years, after SNBR I moved into a Director of Operations role with Calo Young Adults. I then transeferred to the Calo Lake Ozark campus so I could be closer to family and friends. I enjoy riding my bike, camping, walking my dogs and generally being outside.
