I grew up Burnsville, MN and earned both a Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science from the University of Minnesota. After college and during graduate school, I worked as a Zookeeper at the Como Zoo in St. Paul for 8 years. I worked mainly with the Primate department, but also worked with the African Hoofstock.
I currently live in St. Paul with my Husband, two cats, and a dog. We enjoy doing anything outdoors, traveling, and trying out new and delicious restaurants wherever we go.
