I grew up on the central coast of California, my grandparents and I would travel through and to Reno often during my childhood. I spent many Christmas and summer vacations in Reno at the Circus Circus in the 80’s. I even sat on the lap of Tenille at a Captain and Tenille show when I was a child. The first and only times I ever saw snow was in Reno.
Little did I know I would end up living working and building a family here. I move to Reno permanently from Texas in December of 2006. In the spring of 2007 I met my husband who was also from Texas…I came to Reno to meet a boy from Texas! We have set roots here and I don’t see us leaving any time soon. I have had more opportunity here to thrive and learn and build a career than I have in any other city, and I have lived in many cities in 3 different states.
