I believe in living a life with a healthy work-home life balance. When I am not working, you can find me using my creative mind in my next knitting project or behind the lens of my digital camera shooting some nature photography.  


I have a strong interest in being active especially when the Minnesota weather is pleasant. During the Spring and Summer, you will find me running and cycling.  I also love sitting on my sofa in my home office reading a good book.

When I have the opportunity, I love to travel and explore my world. One of my favorite destinations is Maui, Hawaii where I love exploring all of the local sites and sitting on the beach. I also enjoy traveling to Brussels, Belgium where I love taking a bike ride around the city and also sampling good Belgian chocolate.


My dream vacation destination is Japan where my husband temporarily lived abroad and exploring Kyoto and Fukuoka. I also would love to travel to Haalam and Rotterdam in the Netherlands and practice the Dutch language that I have previously learned. I love the Dutch culture and exploring the cities by bike.
