I graduated Storm Lake High School in 1999, and completed 2 years of community college at Iowa Central Community College.
I attended the University of Iowa where I completed my BA in German and Art, my MA in German and received my teaching certification.
My favorite pastime is working out. I enjoy lifting weights and staying fit. I have competed in five Powerlifting meets, and currently hold a record for the USAPL.
In addition, I enjoy reading. My favorite genre is Non-Fiction/Memoirs.
