I grew up in Calgary and moved to Terrace in 2002. I have an amazing husband and two equally amazing stepchildren. I attended SAIT for Broadcasting from 2000-2002 and University of Washington in Seattle for Earth and Space Sciences, I graduated in 2009.

I think I have gone Crazy….

One thing you will learn about me…I always have something on the go.  A goal I’m trying to achieve, or something I want to cross off my bucket list.
