I am a lake country native and first time mama! I have worked in the Beauty industry for over 10 years; but I become a stay at home mom when my daughter, Hazel, was born! I am married to the love of my life, Ian! Before we were parents, I swear we were super cool and knew all about the downtown bar scene! Now, you can usually find me at wondering the isles of Target, in the drive thru line at Starbucks, or strolling around the Zoo with my little sidekick! I am so excited to be on this journey of motherhood with you!
