I am an independent, passionate and candid woman whose life is filled will joy. I enjoy many roles which are of a mother,  an entrepreneur,  a spouse, a colleague, a daughter, a friend, and an adventurer. 


I am currently employed by Sanford Health in human resources. I own Pie of Life Consulting & Life Coaching which was born out of my desire to assist others in navigating their own life journey. 


I blend my natural humor with a practical approach to life as a powerful way to engage others and live with intentionality. 


 I am a survivor of human trafficking and childhood sexual assault. These life experiences provide me with a unique perspective that guide my desire to embrace diversity and be accepting of all others I encounters. While it is not easy at times, I have chosen to share my story with others so they can learn and develop a realistic understanding of human trafficking.
