    A little bit about myself:

    I am originally from Washington state. My father and his family have always lived in ND, since I was little I would travel here occasionally. So that is my connection with Valley City. Graduated in May of 2019 from VCSU with my bachelor's degree with a Major in Business admin. and a minor in Human Resources. I recently changed careers from a Server for many years. I love customer service, I take pride in being kind and helping others, let it be a simple gesture or a larger one, I am a people person for sure! I enjoy spending time with my family, staying active and interacting with new and old friends. I have 2 boys, 15 year old Treylan (loves tennis, and math) and a 4 ½ year old Brockston ( loves Firetrucks and cuddles). My husband, Chris and I were married in August of 2017.  He is a diesel mechanic and works very hard for his family. We believe in working hard to enjoy the things we have.
