Tell us about yourself…
I moved to Wyoming to be close to my family and I spend as much time as possible with my niece Gabby. Here I finally found the life I had searched for, for so long. I get to spend time enjoying my family and I have gained great new friendships. In March 2020, during the craziness of the pandemic, I married my best friend Nathan on snowmobiles, during a beautiful snowstorm with family and close friends by our side. I am a new stepmother to his three daughters, Nikiyla, Chyauna, and Mirakai; which is one of the most important roles that I have ever undertaken and thoroughly enjoy. I love these kids and we have some great adventures together!
I have a fur baby that is beyond spoiled, Wicket, and he is often riding shotgun whenever we are out and about in town!
I am happiest when I am on an adventure with my friends and family. I believe you should never overlook the importance of time spent having fun and being adventurous and I try to make sure we are ready to explore and have fun as often as possible.
I am involved with our local snowmobile club, Riverton Sno-Goers where I have been in an officers’ role for three years. I am an avid snowmobiler that loves the winter and love to introduce new people to our love of all outdoor adventures in our lovely state of Wyoming.
I believe that you have to have a balance in your professional career and your personal life. I work hard so that I have the time and ability to play hard. My role model is my mother, as she has taught me so much about the truly important things in life. I want to be an influence on my girls like she has been to me. I hope my girls will grow up to be strong, independent women that are dedicated to their goals, and ready to take on any adventure!
