Staff Reporter

I am a Midwestern girl, born and raised in Nebraska where my passion for writing and sharing information has been cultivating since I was a little girl. 

After going to college in the "big city" of Omaha, I have spent the last 15 years as a writer, copy editor and page designer with a small town newspaper. In that time, I watched, followed and used technology including many apps that help keep my professional and personal lives in check. 

When I'm not working in one fashion or another, I am spending time with my husband Tim and our two children Anna and Ben.
