I was born and raised in the great state of Montana, where my family has lived for five generations! My dad's grandparents homesteaded near Melville, MT and my mom's family is from the Dillon, MT area. I was raised in the beautiful area of Twin Bridges an developed a love for all things outdoors, particularly floating the rivers, hunting, and spending time in the mountains.
In 1993 I graduated from the dental hygiene program at Sheridan College, and moved to Bozeman, MT with my husband, Andres. We enjoyed raising our three children there, 2 daughters and one son. 2007 brought us to Buffalo, when Andres graduated in 1989. We like to spend our free time in the mountains, shooting guns and riding motercycles and we also enjoy boating on Lake DeSmet.
