I moved to Fort Collins in August of 2014, after having lived in St Paul, Minnesota, for many years, but I’m originally from Wisconsin. I started learning French in 6th grade, and I studied abroad in France twice–once for a semester in Nantes and then again for a summer session in Lyon.
My favorite things in life are music and traveling, and I’ve been to 25 different foreign countries/principalities! I go to a lot of concerts and LOVE rock and alternative music. My favorite national band is the Foo Fighters, but I love me some Zeppelin and Beatles too! Writing is a passion of mine. I blog, I have published articles on a few different sites, I am a copywriter for a couple businesses, and I also will have my first book published by Routledge Press in 2021. I also love sports and being active!—I love doing yoga, running, blading and playing basketball, and I enjoy going to sporting events. I teach yoga at Meraki Yoga here in Fort Collins.
