I consider myself fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.  I can walk out my door and within an hour be fly fishing, hiking, camping or just enjoy the Teton and Wind River Ranges, Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.

My Mother brought me to the mountains at an early age and the spectacular beauty, lifestyle and energy made an impact on me. I knew this is where I wanted to spend my life.

Of course, life took me on a few detours to Seattle and Washington, D.C., but eventually, I landed in Jackson Hole.

Aside from fly fishing, travel, food, wine and exploring the outdoors are my passions.  Join me here on This Is What’s Next as I share life’s twists, turns and humor about things I love.

A native Iowan, I grew up on the Mississippi River in Guttenberg. I’m a diehard Iowa State Cyclone and I am blessed with an incredible husband and family who are always ready for an adventure and plenty of laughter.
