I was born and raised in the beautiful Potato state...Idaho!!! I'm a transplant to the beach and I love that I get to spend most of my days near the ocean! I live for traveling the country and the world and enjoy anything active and outdoors. I love spending time with my Idahoan family and other good hearted folks.
