Personal

I grew up in Hudson, Wisconsin, but have been in Minnesota for about 15 years.  My husband and I are raising our son and daughter in the South Metro area.  We enjoy hiking and biking, visiting the lakes, and going to the zoo or museums.  We like to do sports and crafts with the kids.  I also enjoy yoga, Zumba, book club, movies, and great restaurants.
