I studied psychology and religion at Luther College in Decorah, IA. My senior thesis focused on Buddhist psychology and its potential for treating ADHD, a disorder that is near and dear to my heart.

When I started All(y)OverThePlace, I was working as an Au Pair in Angiari, Verona, Italy. Since the fall of 2017, I have been living in Minnesota and working as a Youth and Family Minister at a Lutheran church. In 2018, I started my mDiv at Luther Seminary in St. Paul.

If home is where your heart is, my home is all over the place: Twin Cities, Spring Valley, WI, Angiari, Italy… it just depends on the day!

I still travel as often as I can, but these days, I spend most of my free time singing or thinking about┬ámy dog, Willie. He’s the reason I’ll always come home.
