Tell us about about yourself.

I was born in Williston, North Dakota, but moved to Fargo at the age of 11. I have two amazing parents, a sister, two brothers, two sisters-in-law, a brother-in-law, three nieces, and three nephews. Upon graduation from Fargo South High School, I attended Concordia College and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications with an emphasis on public relations and advertising in 2003. My collegiate studies also focused on journalism and pre-law.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy spending time with my family and large extended family as well as my friends. I also enjoy cooking and baking, tending to my flower garden, reading anything biographical or history related, researching and studying the genealogy of my 100 percent Norwegian ancestry, writing, and singing. I’m also a huge fan of a vast array of movies and music ranging from classics to the latest releases.
