After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.

One second. You wouldn’t think such a small amount of time could change everything. Over the past couple of years, my faith hasn’t been very strong. It was starting to really get to me. I felt like I was on an old record player, stuck on repeat — doing the same thing everyday. I needed it to stop; I needed to make a change and reconnect with God. What better place to do that than by going to one of God’s most beautiful creations: Alaska.
