I grew up in Hawthorne. Coming up to Reno was a rare trip..usually for major shopping like school clothes or Christmas. It was always so big when we drove in off the freeway. I started driving up here on my own my senior year. I almost killed myself first trip by pulling off on an exit to talk with a friend! Now, it almost 20 years later and I can say that I found a place to direct my passion and talent in Reno. I have found great friends and grown my family. Reno is great and so many work to make it greater each day. A city with all seasons, lots of opportunity and diverse population. I can’t wait to see what happens next!!
