Mindy grew up in Iowa, but landed in Minnesota after graduating from college and will likely only tell you she is from Minnesota because she loved living there so much. She attended Northwestern College in Iowa, earning a BA in Youth Ministry, and is enrolled in the MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Denver Seminary. Mindy loves all kinds of outdoor adventures and activities. She also loves dogs and will ask to pet most dogs she meets. She dreams of owning a Husky in the future because she has a deep love for wolves and unashamedly howls at the moon like a good wolf would. It was during her time in wilderness ministry in northern Minnesota and Canada that her fascination with wolves and all things Canada grew. Coffee is usually at the front of her mind: how she can get it, where she can get it, and who she can get it with. Some of Mindy’s favorite activities include spending time with people, being outside, and playing games.
