Hi, it’s so nice to meet you! I’m so glad you’re here!

A little bit about me and why I started WanderLust in Real Life:

I’m a 30 something Minnesota born and raised travel enthusiast. I have lived most of my life in Minnesota until just recently we sold our home in the Minneapolis (Twin cities) suburbs. Together with my husband, Clayton and our dog (he’s a Boston Terrier/Pug mix), Barkley we’re relocating to the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area in Texas. My husband is a born and raised Texan. As a part of our relocation journey, we bought a travel trailer/RV and are going on an extended road trip throughout the United States.

I grew up in northern Minnesota & didn’t catch the travel bug until I was in college. During the course of my undergrad I studied abroad, TWICE! (But I’ll tell you more about that later.)

Since those experiences I’ve always had an insatiable appetite for exploring whether near or far. There is always an adventure around the corner no matter where you are. It’s my goal to help you fulfill the wanderlust in your life.

Currently, I work in a corporate career 9-5 which is where the concept of “WanderLust in Real Life” came from. I’m always planning and dreaming up my next vacation and strategically using my PTO and weekends to travel and explore as much as I can as often as I can.

Other interests of mine include: golfing, hiking, snowboarding, craft beer & delicious/unique food or drink. Many of these things are intertwined within my adventures or make me want to explore certain destinations.
