People walk through a wooded section of the Northland Arboretum lit by black lights Thursday, Sept. 29, 2022, during the Brainerd Lakes Area Drug Education Coalition Recovery Walk in Baxter. The walk was a chance for the community to come together to celebrate National Recovery Month by increasing awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use disorders and restoring hope by emphasizing that prevention works, treatment is effective and people recover.

Growing up in the Brainerd lakes area I realized that I never wanted to leave, so it is a true blessing that I was able to find a job at the Dispatch doing something I love. As a visual journalist, I work in the mediums of photography and videography to bring our readers everything from sports, hard news, weather and local events to slice of life documentation of our coverage area.
