Born and raised in Minnesota, I'm currently finishing my bachelors degree online through St. Cloud State University with high hopes to make it big in the writing world. I enjoy volunteering at church and the local women’s domestic violence center, spending time with friends and family, going out for coffee, and playing with my cat Chloe.

I've been an ostomate since 2012 because of pelvic floor dysfunction. In 2018, I started a blog called Fighting Ostomy Girl to inspire those around me, especially my fellow ostomates!
