I grew up in the Magic Valley in Gooding, Idaho. I attended Brigham Young University-Idaho, where I majored in Art Education with a minor in Journalism Education. I teach pottery and drawing/painting at Twin Falls High School and Canyon Ridge High School. I've worked professionally as a graphic designer since 2012, and I own an online photo card company.
I've been married for almost 10 years, and I'm a mommy to two beautiful, little girls. I love summertime, boating, ice-cream, volleyball, Chipotle, and DIY projects. I hate mayonnaise, frogs, organizing my office, and dried-up tubes of paint. My goals for the future include continuing my education, learning to sew, and traveling more.
