I was born and raised here in Salt Lake, Cottonwood Heights, to be exact. I am the youngest of five kids (two brothers and two sisters). I met and married my soulmate, Ryan, five years ago. I have five kids, ranging in age from seven to nineteen years old. Yes, I changed diapers for 15 straight years…gah! My love for the outdoors began when I was a young lady, fishing nearly every weekend with my Dad, mostly at Flaming Gorge. Those were by far the best memories of my childhood. I earned my basic and advanced EMT certification a few years ago and got to experience a couple of ride-alongs with the fire department and, ya know, safe a few lives. I absolutely love every aspect of the outdoors and the feeling of peace and purpose whenever I am there. I’ve loved working here at LM and getting to know like-minded people!
