I was born and raised in Minnesota but I have been fortunate to live, learn and love multiple places around the world. I have a B.S. in Nutrition from the University of Minnesota, a M.S. in Sociology and Applied Community and Economic Development from Illinois State University, and an M.A, in Education from the University of St. Thomas. I also served in the Peace Corps as a Health volunteer in Botswana working with Humana People to People for over two years. I love to travel and have visited many countries in Africa, Europe and the Americas.
