I was born and raised in Wausau and studied Forest Management at UW-Stevens Point. In my free time, I enjoy camping, kayaking, snowshoeing, dog training, bow hunting, and trout fishing. I always knew I wanted to work outdoors and growing up, I had an appreciation for forests and now understand first-hand the wide array of services a healthy forest provides.

What I like about Marathon County: The people and setting are both wonderful. I appreciate our rural landscape and public lands that are available for all recreational opportunities for all ages!
