What do you for work?

I recently took a full-time position at Greater Fergus Falls Corp. I do some part-time work with the Fergus Falls Downtown Riverfront Council, as well. In my “spare time” I coach cheerleading at Hillcrest and USAG XCEL gymnastics at Fergus Falls Gymnastics Academy.

What do you like to do for fun?

I’m a true crime junkie, so I read quite a bit, listen to a ton of podcasts.

How long have you lived in Fergus Falls?

My family moved here in 2016.

Why did you choose to come to Fergus Falls?

Specifically so that my daughter could attend Hillcrest. We absolutely love it!

Why do you love most about Fergus Falls and the surrounding area?

The proximity to the lakes and the nostalgia of the downtown area.

What is something about this area and Fergus Falls that most people don’t know, but should?

As a fairly recent transplant to the community, I learn something different every day. I’m not sure I know any secret spots!

What do you envision the future of Fergus Falls looking like?

I would love to see Fergus Falls become a destination in the Midwest. Whether it be visiting art galleries or touring craft breweries, there is going to be a myriad of opportunity in the coming months and years!
