Born and bred in South Dakota, I spent my youth attempting to be a moderate overachiever. Upon departing the state on a quest for knowledge I found myself not too far from home in Marshall, MN at SMSU. A few life experiences later, I ventured a bit further into the land of 10,000 lakes. Living in Minneapolis and working for Regis corporation wrote a few more chapters in the book of my life. However a slight affinity for my family reeled me back to the land I started on. And quite literally they reeled me back – because presently I’m working for Hagen’s a small fishing manufacturer as their lady in charge of all things marketing.
