I graduated from Tioga High School in 2010, and attended Dickinson State University, where I was on the Rodeo Team. I started my wedding photography business shortly after my oldest kiddo was born in 2012. I have had a passion for educating fellow entrepenuers for many years which inspired me to start my own podcast in late 2019.
