About Me

I am originally from South Carolina, but have been adventuring alongside my military spouse, zigzagging across the globe for years. But now? Well, Minot has stolen our hearts, and we're settling in for the long haul after my hubby hung up his military boots for good.

Our household is a lively blend of ages and stages! We've got our 18-year-old son gearing up for UND, while our little 5-year-old daughter is all set to take on kindergarten. Oh, and let's not forget our fur babes – two pups and a couple of mischievous felines keep life interesting. 

I'm all about the outdoor life – camping, golfing, and kayaking are right up my alley. And when it comes to food, count me in for trying anything new, especially when it's paired with a good glass of wine. 
I wear a couple of hats in the community – I'm the Director of Team Events and Meetings at Visit Minot, and I also run The Taste of Minot Downtown Food Tour.  I find so much joy showing off the best of our town and I look forward to helping you get settled in the Magic City! 

Fun Fact About Me:  I've got this quirky, random talent for sniffing out people from my hometown wherever I go. Whether it's on a food tour in Paris, a conference in Wyoming, or even just having dinner right in Minot, I somehow always manage to find fellow Greenville natives. It's become a running joke with my closest friends and family – whenever I excitedly announce, "I met someone from Greenville!" it's met with an affectionate eye roll and the inevitable response, "Of course you did!'"
