Are you from 417-land? If not, where did you grow up and what keeps you here?
I'm from a small town in Kansas that will always have a sentimental place in my heart, but somehow I have grown to love the Ozarks just as much. I have found that 417-land offers all of the sweet small town charm of my hometown but with all of the resources of a big city and is the perfect place to raise a family.
What did (or do) you want to be when you grew up?
In preschool I would've said a ballerina. But since the third grade—when I realized I had no dance skills and a career in pink slippers probably wasn't an option—I've always said a journalist. Which to be honest, I only knew was the official title because I went home from school before career day and asked my mom what they called someone who wrote stories for newspapers and magazines.
What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends?
My husband and I love quiet weekends walking through our neighborhood, hanging out with friends and eating dinner on our deck.
