About Me: I was born and raised in Nebraska, and I dislike the cold and snow. So, 4 years ago, I packed up my family and moved to Columbia, SC. I have 4 daughters and a large extended family. I enjoy the outdoors, my dogs, and spending time with family and friends. 

Favorite Quote: I hope my achievements in life shall be these... that I will have fought for what was right and fair, that will have risked for that which mattered, and that I will have given help to those who were in need. That I will have left the earth a better place for what I've done and who I've been.- C. Hoppe

Advice to Students: Always remember to look for the "good", especially when life seams stressful and out of control. It can go by quickly, and we spend too much time focusing on the negative. Stop, breath, and find the "good". 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
