PO Box 1238
Pierre, SD 57501
I am from Maquoketa, Iowa (props to anyone who can properly pronounce this). I wasn't sure what I wanted to do straight out of high school, so I just kept trekking along at my desk job at a motel until one day I saw a commercial for court reporting at AIB College of Business. I called that day and was in the program starting September of 2008.
I graduated in May of 2012. While I was on my way to Pierre for my interview, my instructor called me and said, "You did it! You passed," to which I replied, "Shut up," and burst into tears. With the exception of a small nine-month stint, I have resided in Pierre with my cat Mable, "The Mabes," for the last seven years, and we absolutely love it. This is where I am meant to be.
I am looking forward to serving as Secretary of SDCRA.
