“I am a Christian, a Mother, a Loyal Friend to many amazing women, a Norwegian- American, a Lover of Life. I #LiveInclusively by wanting to learn all I can about differences so I can meet people where they are and learn and understand about cultures other than my own, and be intentional in doing so.  To take the time to pause and reflect when I find myself in a situation where I am uncomfortable and ask myself why – then learn and grow from the why through self-reflection.”
