I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Hospitality Management. In 2014, I completed a Master's degree in Sustainable Tourism Development from Arizona State University. My studies included internships with the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, North Carolina, The StockFarm Club in Hamilton, Montana and The Hotel Sofitel in Bloomington, Minnesota. I also studied Wine and Food Pairing at the Universitat de les illes Balears of Palma de Mallorca, Spain. In my free time I enjoy camping, fishing and hunting; some of my most treasured memories are from BWCA and Quetico canoe trips. Since moving back to my hometown of Ely, I have taken over the daily operations of my family's business, the Jasper Company and opened up Northern Grounds, a Coffee+Wine Bar in Ely's downtown.
