I was born and raised in Montana. I grew up in Harlowton. That is where I got my CNA certification when I was 17 years old. I continued working as a cna after high school with a temp agency named Prioricare Staffing solutions. I worked all over the state in nursing homes, it ended up taking me to Ennis Montana. I lived in Ennis for 15 years and worked 8 years at to the  Madison Valley Manor while continuing traveling part time. Four years ago I moved to Bozeman where I started working for two home health companies, Advocare and First Choice Home Heathcare.

     In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my 2 dogs Gema a 10 year old pit/mix and Chance an 11 your old Papillon. Whether its going to snowfill dog park or taking a hike in the surounding mountains. Floating the Madison is always a great time with friends and family.
