I grew up in Kansas as an all American girl. I am proud that I was raised in America. My family has been here for generations. I lived in Payola, Kansas until I the summer before 2nd grade when I moved to Independence, Kansas.
I was raised in a Christian home by my two parents. Growing up I had two older brothers: Rusty who is 4 years older than me and Cory who is just a year older than me. After both of my older brothers moved out of my parents house when I was 18, my parents had the opportunity of fostering 4 kids. These 4 kids, Zane, Zeke, Kammer, and Heartlei have become a part of the family.
Growing up my cousin and I had tea parties with our dads. We got to dress up fancy and go on a date. We were taught how we should be treated by guys. This was a big part of who I am because it taught me how to act like a lady.
My dad graduated with his masters in Agriculture Education. He has worked in a school system my entire life. When we moved to Independence, Kansas my dad became the superintendent at a small private school. I decided I wanted to be a teacher in 6th grade and knew that Kansas State University was the place for me.
