Senior Graphic Designer

I am from a small town in Iowa, which is where I met my husband. We have two daughters, Ryann & Hathaway. In addition to humans...our family also includes two dogs, a cat, and a herd of cows. When we are not on the farm; you can find us at a zoo, hiking, traveling or doing house renovations. Here are a few of my favorite things: running (after children and for wellness), coffee, pasta (which is why I run), wine, ISU Cyclones, and crafting.
