"I am from Hazelwood, Missouri. I attended Garrett Elementary School and later, I attended Hazelwood West Middle School. My family relocated to O’Fallon, MO in 1997, where I attended and graduated from Fort Zumwalt South High School. I attended the Summer Scientific Seminar at the Air Force Academy in the summer of 1998 via a selective application program. I studied biology and chemistry at Missouri Baptist University.
I was raised by entrepreneurial parents and I had my first paying job at 6. I worked for my family’s commercial janitorial and floor care company as a teenager and during college. After my father's passing in 2011, I stepped up to become Director of Operations, the position I currently hold.
I became a member of MENSA in 2013 and am currently in good standing with the organization. My partner, Chris, and I just celebrated 10 years together and currently reside in Wentzville."
