I was born in Hastings and was raised on a farm outside of Deweese. I graduated from Sandy Creek in 1996 and then went on to college. I graduated from Creighton University in 2000 with my BSN., then worked as an RN. I came back to Hastings in 2000 and worked at Mary Lanning until 2017. My husband, Andy, and I purchased Eldon’s Automotive Repair in January of 2015 and in 2017 we made the decision that I would quit nursing and work at the shop full time, which I am still doing. Andy and I have 2 children, Kaleb who is 16 and Emma who is 12.
