I grew up on a hobby farm with goats and cows and a peacock, and I love everything about that. I like the animals, and caring for living creatures, and being outside. I love spring, when babies are born, and everything is new and happy.
I moved to Mankato last year to be closer to school, and to my job. I still love country living, and hope to move out of town again someday, but living in Mankato is really pretty great.
I also show my dogs, and it is easily the most time consuming aspect of my life. I've been working on if for years, and it's a dream I finally was able to realize. I spend my days going over pedigrees, and practicing show stacks, and searching for good deals on treats and toys for my little buddy. Hit me up and we can go to a show together.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in school, part time, for a Marketing and Economics degree.
Financially, going to school full time is not an option at this
time, and I have a real problem with borrowing a lot of money with
no real guarantee of paying it back, so I intend to finish school
slowly, but without debt.
I have two great goals for my life. I want to raise a large family,
and I want to judge best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog
Show before I die. Every day, I'm striving towards greater
professionalism in everything I do, so that I can meet these
long-term goals. I have drive and plans, but at this point it has
been hard for me to go in just ONE direction. Ultimately, I have a
lot of faith that God will lead me in the direction which will best
I’m really good at
I am GREAT at Tetris and telling stories and grooming my dog.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair! It's out of control, and so red in the summer, but I don't
mind ginger jokes.

The six things I could never do without
My friends and family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Dogs! I own two and and handle for some friends. I want to show a
bred-by dog at Westminster by the 150th annual show, and I spend
most of my time researching my breed and looking at potential studs
and checking the bite of my growing show prospect. I want to judge
BIS at Westminster before I die.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a glass of wine with a book, or showing a dog. This is the
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I LOVE M&M's. A lot. Too much. I eat a lot of them. And I can
only eat them when they're properly sorted by color.
