Where are you from? What brought you to Sioux Falls, and or what do you love about Sioux Falls?

I was born and raised here; I love Sioux Falls! Although it is a decently sized city, it has a small town and community feel. I am very happy being in Sioux Falls, and all the opportunities that I have here.

What are your top two outdoor activities and why?

Kayaking is the best; it is such a relaxing activity, but you get to be active at the same time. Plus, I love any chance I get to wear my Chacos. Running is one of my favorites as well. Sometimes a nice long run on the bike trail is the best kind of therapy.

What is the favorite place that you have traveled to and why?

Most recently, I have traveled to the Grand Canyon with my family. It is hard to describe it without sounding cheesy, but it is probably one of the most beautiful places I have even been. There is something so crazy about looking over something so big and feeling so small. Being able to explore that area with my sisters gave me some awesome memories.

What is your favorite part of working at GOS?

I seriously work with some of the coolest and smartest staff in town. I love the welcoming feel that is accompanied with being at GOS. Learning about new products is always fun and interesting, and it is awesome being able to share that information with customers. 

If you were stranded on a desert island, and only had 3 foods to have with you, what would they be?

I could seriously survive forever off of crackers, cheese, and salami. Who doesn't love a good meat and cheese tray? I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. All I would need is a lifetime supply of Diet Coke to go with it and I would be set.
