ABOUT

I was born and raised in a small town of Wisconsin with a population of less than 5,000 people. I am grateful for all of the life lessons that come from a small town lifestyle but I knew from the grocery store romance novels that my grandma used to sneak me, that there was WAY more out there for me to explore

I spent the entire decade of my 20's saying "YES!" to almost anything that was a new experience,  a new place to live or a new job.

I have always thought that the best way to learn was through experience. I was absolutely that child that no matter how many times you told me that the stove was hot - I still had to touch it... and yes that goes for licking frozen flag poles at the bus stop too. 

I have had a lot of random jobs including a PBX operator at a resort, working on a derivatives trading desk, and doing inventory management for a Toyota dealership. From all of my career choices I have continued to refine my skills of organization, creativity, googling to figure things out, and creating systems to work more efficiently.

the journey

My most recent big accomplishment was completely renovating a 1960's fixer upper all from instructional YouTube videos and inspirations from Pinterest. The house sold within 3 days of being on the market!

My goal is to never stop learning and continue to share my crazy ideas and Pinterest fails to help inspire you and provide a few laughs along the way. Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my website and I am excited that we've connected!  Stay in touch on Pinterest + Instagram.
