I am the oldest of four children and grew up in the Cougar Country of Pullman, Washington. 

I attended Gonzaga University where I played Division 1 soccer for 5 years. 

Post-college employment took me to Madison, WI for 2+ years where the cheese is abundant, the beer is delicious, and it really is as cold as people say it is.

My favorite place in the world is Switzerland (where the cheese is also abundant).

Traveling is my favorite past time and a requirement for my continued sanity. Whether I am embarking on an adventure through Europe, visiting my sister in Portland, or simply going home to see our pup, I'm always planning my next escapade.

I recently got married in California and as a result, I answer to both Spangenberg and Quinn.

My husband and I set a goal to visit five national parks every year. The local North Cascades National Park is one of our favorites, as is Zion National Park, where we got engaged.

I have a penchant for drinking coffee, texting my mom, and being overly ambitious about my hiking aspirations, even though it usually pays off in the end
