When I have free time, I like to
snowboard, spend time with family, go fishing and spend time on the lake, riding the Harley and helping on the farm.
My favorite hobby is
Snowboarding.
My favorite food is
Couscous, veggies and almonds.
I would describe myself as
Athletic, caring, passionate...
The person I admire the most is
My parents- I've been a handful and they have always loved and supported me unconditionally BUT I'm daddy's little girl.
If I could spend one day with someone, it would be
My grandma Dorie. I was never able to meet her but I have heard so much about her and know how much my dad loved her so she had to have been pretty cool.
The reason I love my sport is
My mom is a basketball coach and the gym was my babysitter.
My favorite sports team is
Bears...yes, even if they are terrible.
My favorite athlete is
Walter Peyton.
The best advice I have received
You have to love yourself before anyone else can love you in return.
Advice I would give
Learn from your mistakes but never regret your past. Your past has made you who you are and all struggles make you stronger.
I chose Sauk because
I am finishing my second degree and got tired of commuting.
After graduating, I plan to
Work in the neonatal intensive care unit and maybe start a family someday.
