When I’m not at work I like to spend my free time getting outside as much as possible! I have a puppy who is 4 years old and loves to go on hikes and all sorts of adventures with me. I also really enjoy hammocking- Minnesota is a beautiful state and has some really cool spots to explore! But also love just relaxing on the couch and watching movies or new TV shows. Family and friends are very important to me, so as much family/friend time means everything to me.
