I was born in Milwaukee, WI but my family has been back and forth from Houghton County since the late 60s/early 70s. I graduated from Dollar Bay High School and 3 classes away from my B.A. from Michigan Tech in Theatre and Electronic Media Peformance with a minor in Technical Theatre. My love for theatre has made me recognize my passion for mental health awareness and destigmatizing asking for help. Self-care is necessary to be a successful person.
