I have always enjoyed taking pictures. My dad had a Nikon film camera growing up and started my love of photography. In school, I took drawing and painting classes but it wasn’t until I found photography that I found my artistic voice. I love the connection you can make with a single image, one look can stir emotions and revive old memories. I want to make life long remembrance with my work.
I’ve lived in Williston almost all my life. In 2004, I received my Pharmacy Doctorate from NDSU and returned home to work. I spent 10 years working as a hospital pharmacist, which I thoroughly enjoyed, until I was pregnant with my 6th child. With my kids getting more active in sports and school activities, I found I needed to make a choice between work and family. I felt I still needed something for myself to do and grow at. I started taking photography classes and found my place again.
