Born in Fargo, North Dakota, I grew up in Edina, Minnesota and graduated from Macalester College in 2004. In 2006 I moved to New York City. Since then, I have worked in the field of public relations, representing professional services firms and financial services (in particular alternative asset managers). In 2014, my life changed dramatically with the birth of my first child, Sonya Rose. Born with profound hearing loss. Sonya’s care has become my full time job. It is also the best job I have ever had.
