Brief biography

I grew up on a farm in the province of Manitoba and moved to several US areas before settling in Onalaska for the last 13 years with my husband and two daughters.

I enjoy reading, music, my two dogs, and hanging out with my family. Hanging out means mostly chauffeuring and attending the girls' activities.
